Twelve-year-old girl accosted in Rochford
3:26pm Tuesday 23rd October 2012 in Echo News
A TWELVE-YEAR-OLD girl was accosted by a stranger in the street who made an indecent comment.
Police believe the same man may have been watching children in the Rochford area over the last few days.
It was reported that the girl had been in Leecon Way at about 5pm on Monday when a man made a lewd suggestion. She walked away.
The man was described as white, aged between 20 and 30, and bald. He was wearing white top and blue shorts with white stripes down the sides.
Officers are investigating possible links between the incident and reports of a man also wearing a white top and dark shorts seen watching children in the Golden Cross Parade area of Rochford shortly before 6.30pm on Saturday.
Any witnesses or anyone with information about either incident should call officers at Rayleigh police station on 101.
