There have been reports of a man making 'suspicious approaches' to children

The PSNI are investigating suspicious approaches to children in Bangor, Co Down.

They have received three seperate reports from Sunday and yesterday in the Kilcooley area.

At around 5pm on Sunday last, two nine-year-old children were approached by a man in Rostrevor Drive.

This man walked into an alleyway before unfastening his belt. The girls did not enter the alleyway and ran home.

Yesterday around 4pm an eight-year-old girl reported that she was approached by a male in the Kircubbin Gardens area, he asked her to keep an eye out while he went to the toilet. She said no and he went away.

An hour later a seven-year-old girl had been playing near her home in Glastry Court, Bangor, when a man approached her and asked her to go into an alleyway.

She did not do it, but the man exposed himself before she ran away.

Police say none of the children were physically assaulted, but the incidents have caused a great deal of concern among parents.
