Stranger who quizzed daughter made her mother shiver
Updated 11:31am Saturday 1st March 2014 in News
A MOTHER said she felt “shivers down her spine” after a stranger approached her daughter and asked her questions.
Vanessa Hopkins was walking in Glenmore Road, Carterton, on Tuesday when the man got out of a dark grey car and offered her a bicycle which he said had belonged to his own daughter, with whom he had lost contact.
She said: “He looked at my daughter in such a way it sent shivers down my spine. Instantly he began to ask how old she was and other questions, not taking his eyes off her.
“When I refused to tell him any information about my daughter he persistently asked why I wouldn’t tell him and seemed quite snappy.”
She reported the incident to police, but after officers had looked into the matter, they said no crime had been committed.
