Stranger danger

POLICE are investigating after a child was approached by a man in Dumfries on Sunday evening.

Officers are appealing for witnesses after receiving a report regarding a child being approached by a man whilst within the park on Lochside Road, near McDonalds at about 7.30 pm.

The man exchanged words with the child before apparently chasing the child a short distance along Lochside Road towards the church. It is reported the male thereafter possibly entered a white vehicle before leaving the area in an unknown direction. The child returned home unharmed.

Anyone that can assist officers with their enquiries, should call 101 quoting reference 3004 of 17/04/2022.
