Warning as man approaches girl twice at bus stop.

A SUSPICIOUS man in an orange car approached a 15-year-old girl yesterday.

Police said about 9am the girl was waiting for a bus outside a Tweed City Shopping Centre on Minjungbal Dr.

"She told police that a man driving an orange car stopped beside her and offered her a lift but she declined," a police spokesman said.

"The man then drove off."

The man in the orange car came back a short time later and asked if she wanted a lift before telling her to get into the car.

Police said the girl ran into the shopping centre and the man drove away.

The incident has occurred just 10 days after an 11-year-old was approached by a man in Tyalgum.

About 6pm on September 21 the man attempted to entice the girl, however she ran to a nearby building and reported the incident.

It is unknown if the two cases are related.

Police are reminding the public of the Safe People, Safe Places message:

Make sure your parents or another adult you know knows where you are at all times.

 

Always walk straight home or to the place you are walking to. Walk near busier roads and streets, or use paths where there are lots of other people.

 

Know where safe places are - a shop, service station, police station, library or school. If you are ever frightened, you should go to one of these places and ask them to call the police.

Learn about safe adults you can look for and talk to if you need help - police officers, teachers at school, adults you know and trust.

Don't talk to people you don't know and never get into a car with someone you don't know. If a car stops on the side of the road and you don't know the person inside, do not stop.

If you are scared and can use a phone, call 000 and tell them you are scared.

If someone tries to grab you, yell out, 'Go away, I don't know you'. This lets other people know you have been approached by someone you don't know.
