Police are searching for a man who allegedly made ‘inappropriate comments’ to two teenage girls in Lismore on Saturday.
The two girls – one aged 15, the other 13 – were seated at a picnic table in McKenzie Park, Lismore, around midday on Saturday.
A short time after the girls sat down, they were approached by a man who asked them some questions before making some inappropriate comments.
Unsettled, the girls ran away from the man, before reporting the incident to one of their friends.
Police were contacted and officers from the Richmond Local Area Command are now making inquiries.
In particular, police are keen to speak to anyone who may have seen a man acting strangely in or near McKenzie Park earlier today.
The man is described as being of Aboriginal / Torres Strait Islander appearance, aged between 30 and 40 years old, around 180cm tall and of large build. He was unshaven, and wearing green shorts, a white t-shirt and a green baseball cap at the time of the incident.
Police are urging anyone with information in relation to these incidents to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
