Teenage girl approached by stranger in Pottsville

Police are trying to track down a man who approached a teenage girl in Pottsville yesterday.

The 16-year-old girl was waiting at a bus stop on the Tweed Coast Road at about  10.45am  when a maroon coloured car, similar to a Toyota Land Cruiser, with Queensland registration, slowed down and the male driver was said to be staring at the young girl.

The car drove past and minutes later it returned with the driver asking if the girl wanted a lift. She declined, but the driver continued to try to coax the girl into the car.

The man got out of the car and approached the girl telling her she would have a good time if she got in. The girl became scared and yelled at the man before running from the bus stop.

She reported the matter to her parents who then contacted police.

The man has been described as being Caucasian in appearance, aged between 30 and 40, about 175cm tall with facial hair and reddish brown coloured hair.
