Stranger danger in Ross-on-Wye

By Catherine Barkley in Crime

A Ross-on-Wye mum is warning other local parents to beware, after a man in black Volvo was seen driving around the Chase Wood View housing estate yesterday evening (Wednesday, March 15th) offering sweets to children.

The woman posted on the Ross-on-Wye notice board on Facebook to let other parents know what she had witnessed.

PCSO Austin told the Ross Gazette that this incident was reported to the police yesterday at 6.34pm.

She added that the driver was described as having a tanned complexion. The man was observed driving into the housing estate and he offered a child some sweets. The child declined, and the man made no attempt to exit the vehicle or coax the child into the car.

Unfortunately, eyewitnesses did not record the registration number plate of the vehicle.

If you have any further information about this incident, please contact West Mercia police by calling 101 and giving the reference number: 642-S-150317
