A WARNING has gone out for parents to be vigilant after a girl was approached by two men in a car in Bromsgrove.

The incident happened last Tuesday evening at 6pm as the girl walked along Upland Road and Penine Road.

One of the men, who were both believed to be between 20 and 25 years old, got out of the black KA and asked the girl to go over but she ignored them and carried on walking.

In a separate incident, a 14-year-old girl reported seeing a man touching himself inappropriately as he was sat in a car Meadow Road, Wythall, as she was on her way back from school.

That incident happened yesterday (Monday) at 3.20pm and a 44-year-old Birmingham man has been arrested in conjunction with the incident.

He is currently on police bail and will return to Kidderminster Police Station on August 17.

And in a third incident in Hollywood at 8.30am this morning, three teenagers reported they had been approached by a very thin man who was around 65 years old, with grey hair and a skinny face.

They said they had been approached by the same man at a car boot sale several months ago.

Sgt Richard Field from the Bromsgrove Safer Neighbourhood Team (SNT) said following the incidents, police patrols would be stepped up outside schools to highlight the dangers and raise awareness among parents.

He urged anyone with any information on the incidents or further ones to call police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

A warning text has also gone out to parents of Bromsgrove schoolchildren.

It reads: “There is an unconfirmed report of two men in a black car approaching children.

“Can we remind you all to take precautions to ensure safety on way to/from school.”
