Remembering Bentley

Saturday 15 May is the seventh anniversary of Victory Day at the historic Bentley Blockade, just west of Lismore.

Police are appealing for information after three children in the Bangalow area have reported being followed by a middle-aged man.

In the most recent incident, an 11-year-old girl was riding her bicycle near the Bangalow Bowling Club around 8.50am on Thursday on her way to school in Byron Street when she noticed a man watching her.

Police have been told the man then got into a green/blue Mitsubishi Magna station wagon and began following her.

The girl reported the incident to school staff, who alerted police.

The man is described as being of Caucasian appearance and has grey hair with a bald middle, a grey beard and was wearing a striped collared shirt.

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.
