Police are appealing to the community for information after a child was approached outside a school in Queanbeyan on Monday afternoon (3 September).

Around 3:15 pm, a man approached a five-year-old girl at a bus stop outside a school on Alanbar Street. The man spoke to her but did not touch her.

When the girl’s mother saw the incident and approached her daughter, the man quickly left the area. The mother reported the incident to officers from the Monaro Police District yesterday.

Investigators have been told the man was between 30 and 40 years old, about 175-180cm tall and with a medium build. He had a tanned complexion and dark brown hair.

At the time of the incident, he was wearing an olive-green jacket and dark pants.

Anyone with information about this incident is urged to contact Crime Stoppers immediately on 1800 333 000 or via the NSW Crime Stoppers website.

Information is treated in strict confidence. The public is reminded not to report crime via NSW Police social media pages.

According to the article the girls mother was nearby. The article doesn’t say what was said to the 5yo who is certainly old enough to say.

By leaving out details this article is just feeding the paranoia.

That's about the whole thing in a Nutshell! Why wasn't the Parent/s of the 5yrs old schooler escorting the daughter.

What next ? Off to the Royal Grand Casino opening, with the Kids and the family Dog locked In the Car all night ..Playing the pokies to pay the bills..As if that hasn't happened before, too.

    Jenni Zimoch teachers are meant to be supervising bus stops until children are all on the bus, though maybe all schools don't do this

    Teachers can’t be everywhere. They do the best can.

    The teacher may have been distracted by another child for a minute or anything else. Let’s catch the slime and only comment on facts not play the blame game.
