Men wanted over approach on young girl at Bellingen

POLICE are appealing for public assistance to identify two men who approached a young girl in Bellingen last year.   

Coffs Clarence officers are investigating an incident where an 11-year-old reported she was approached on Tuesday, August 14. 

Police said the girl was walking west on William St about 5pm that afternoon. 

She said she noticed a blue Holden station wagon drive past her with two men inside.

She was able to run home where police were later contacted.

Following a number of inquiries, investigators have now released computer-generated images of two men they believe may be able to assist with their inquiries.
