Third girl in Knaphill approached by man in vehicle
A 12-year-old girl has been approached by a man in a green vehicle in a Surrey village days after two similar incidents involving five-year-olds.
Police said the girl was approached in Inkerman Road, Knaphill, at 08:00 BST.
A man in a green vehicle spoke to two five-year-old girls in separate incidents in the same village on 4 May and 5 May.
A spokeswoman said officers were investigating possible links between the incidents.
The five-year-olds were approached separately.
One was offered £1 in Knaphill High Street by a man in a green vehicle.
The other was spoken to by a man in a green vehicle in Nursery Road.
Police have stepped up patrols in the Knaphill area and have contacted local schools.
Officers appealed to any witnesses or anyone who saw a green vehicle being driven suspiciously in the village to come forward urgently.
"We are following up a number of lines of inquiry, but any assistance would be gratefully received," said Det Chief Insp Karen Mizzi.
