ACT Policing is seeking to identify a suspicious person who approached a 13-year-old-girl in Chisholm last Monday (June 24).

About 7.55am the 13-year-old girl was waiting at the bus stop on Heagney Crescent Chisholm when she was approached by a man on foot who offered to drop her at the Chisholm shopping precinct in his car.

The man is described as described as being African in appearance, aged in his in his mid-40s, approximately 160cm in height and of medium build. He was wearing a dark-coloured jumper and track pants with white stripes down the side. His face was covered with black or dark grey fabric, although he pulled the fabric down from his face when he approached the girl.

The girl ignored the man and left the area. The man did not threaten the girl during the incident and there was no indication the male intended to harm her.

Detectives would like to speak with anyone who may know the man or any witnesses who may have seen a male matching that description around the time of the incident.

Police are urging anyone who may know the man or any witnesses who may have seen a male matching that description around the time of the incident to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via the Crime Stoppers website on www.act.crimestoppers.com.au. Information can be provided anonymously.

UPDATE:

ACT Policing has received information which suggests the person described below may have been driving an older-style grey van, in a state of disrepair. The van has two shades of grey paint, one darker grey (almost black) and one lighter grey colour. Of particular note, the van has stickers resembling the white Nike ‘tick’ logo on its side.

Police are urging anyone who may have seen a vehicle matching this description to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via the Crime Stoppers website on www.act.crimestoppers.com.au. Information can be provided anonymously.

He’s looking alright for mid-40’s. What does he use on his skin?

I’d be surprised if the incident even happened at all. Witness the so-called “sexual assault” in Yass recently that never happened, also several other cases. Also the fact that the girl comes from such a bogan suburb as Chisholm and the photofit of the so-called perpetrator and it is easy to see that she merely wanted to big note herself, get into the media and fuel racial prejudice against blacks.

Amusing that someone who puts scores of very bad videos on YouTube accuses someone else of ‘big noting’ and wanting to get into the media. Love the amazing psychic powers, too.

Oh yes, you have to tell me how to find these videos, they sound hilarious 😀

What is a 13 year old girl doing alone on a winter night in Chisholm of all places? Sounds like the poor guy had just tried to help her, It should be the girls parents being investigated by DOCS not some innocent runner.

Dammit, I all these years I have been thinking 7.55AM was in the morning what a fool, yes the parents should be burned at the stake, I mean it’s not like she was catching the bus to school or anything sensible like that.

My mistake.
Could it be this guy?

He is obviously a tourist and he was looking for a road trip buddy. Knowing the attitude problem of most 13 year old girls he would have kicked her out before the first corner.

I often wonder how many of these “approaches” are actually malicious. While I’m sure some probably are, it’s becoming more likely that the innocent would get caught up in such incidents because everyone now presumes that an adult approaching a young person is out to kidnap them. For example,what may have been a simple request for directions to he Chisholm shops be someone with poor English could lead an alert on this person going out. While it may be important to log such events for future similar occurrences, I’m not convinced that a public notice actually achieves much. Particularly it will all be based on 2 different accounts of the conversation and little else.
