NSW police looking for Queanbeyan scumbag

By whitelaughter 15 August 2012 27

Police are appealing for information after a young girl was approached by a man in the State’s south.

About 4.15pm today (Thursday 9 August 2012), a 13-year-old girl was walking home from school along Sassafras Crescent, Queanbeyan, when a white utility pulled up alongside her.

A man driving the utility spoke to the girl, asking her to get into his vehicle.

The girl ran home and told her brother, who contacted police.

Officers from Monaro Local Area Command are investigating the incident and would like to speak to a man who they believe may be able to assist with their inquiries.

He is described as being about 40-years-old, of Caucasian appearance with reddish skin and receding grey hair.

The vehicle is described as being a white utility, similar to a 1998 VU Commodore, with black wheels and dark windows.

Anyone with information about this incident should call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or use the Crime Stoppers online reporting page: https://www1.police.nsw.gov.au/. Information you provide will be treated in the strictest of confidence. We remind people they should not report crime information via our Facebook and Twitter pages.

Meanwhile, the incident has again prompted police to encourage parents to discuss the ‘Safe People, Safe Places’ messages with their children, including;

– 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.

Would you live in a street called Sassafras Crescent? Come to think of it, would you live in Queanbeyan?

Yes. Yes.
Snob.

I’d prefer to live at Sassafras, though, but the commute would be a killer. Maybe one day.

As far as Mr G.s proposition that this incident could have involved a good samaritan offering the girl a lift home out of kindness, the guy was bald. It doesn’t say whether he had a beard as well, but he may have shaved it off in order to appear less like a paedophile.

Roflmao #1 yeah it’s the kind of evil prejudices like what I have had to put up with on this site. Erin Molan, ADFA scandal, all done by prejudgmental muckrackers who think they’re heroes out protecting the weak little girls from all those big, nasty men out there, innocent or not.

:shudder:

Stop it man, you’re really starting to creep me out. I genuinely hope that you don’t have anyone kept in a cage underneath you’re house.

Fapping to the local newsreader, blaming victims of sexual assault, making insensitive remarks about people who’ve just died, arguing that speed cameras are dangerous and cause crashes, and choosing government based on plastic bag legislation … that’s how I roll, ladies.

Does a small concrete room with airholes drilled in the door count as a cage?

As long as we give it a fancy name and regularly give him replacement needles it should be fine.

I’m thinking ‘The Rapeyface Gillespie Centre For Wayward Deviants’
