Police 'stranger danger' alert after Boxing Day approaches

POLICE are appealing for information after reports of young people being approached.

About 2pm on Boxing Day, a teenage girl was approached by a man at Yuraygir National Park.

A mother and her two daughters, aged 14 and 21, were camping in the park, 40 kilometres east of Grafton.

As the mother turned her back to pick up an item from a cooler box, the 21-year-old girl saw a man looking up the skirt of her 14-year-old sister.

The man was told by the older sibling to leave the area and he was also confronted by another man camping close-by.

The man then promptly the area.

A similar incident was reported later that day.

About 3.30pm, a 13-year-old girl was at Back Beach in Brooms Head with her father when she went for a swim.

As the girl got out of the water she was approached by a man who wanted to take a photo of her.

The girl refused and grabbed her belongings before running to her father.

The man ran off through the headland where he was seen getting into a dark blue hatchback with red p-plates on it.

Police from Coffs/Clarence Local Area Command are investigating the incidents.

The description of both wanted men is similar although police have not said if there is a connection.

They are looking for a man who has been described as being of Caucasian appearance, aged in his 30s, with a small build and wearing maroon three-quarter length shorts.

He may also be wearing sunglasses or a turquoise coloured shirt.

Anyone with information should call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
