ACT Policing is seeking witnesses to an incident which occurred in Weston Creek last night (Tuesday August 31).
About 9pm a 14-year-old male was walking home from a bus stop in Brierly Street, Weston when he noticed a late-model silver BMW sedan bearing black and white ACT registration plates suspiciously drive up and down the street.
As the young male walked along Hindmarsh Drive and onto Streeton Drive in Rivett, he observed the same BMW following behind him. The victim turned onto a footpath at which time the BMW stopped at the pathway and the driver approached the victim on foot.
