Investigations are underway into a reported child approach at Coffs Harbour overnight.
Police have been told four children, aged between two and nine, were playing on McLean Street Oval about 7.30pm on Friday 1 December 2017, when they were approached by a man who’d been jogging around the oval.
The man reportedly picked up the two year old child and jogged with her for a short distance before the child’s sister yelled at him and he put her down.
The man then left the scene.
Police from Coffs/Clarence Local Area Command were alerted.
They have been told the man was of Indian Sub-continental or Asian appearance, 40 to 50 years old, 170cm to 180cm tall, with a thin build and short dark hair.
Police are asking anyone with information about the incident or the man involved to contact Coffs Harbour Police or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
