Police issue appeal and reassurance after a suspicious incident is reported in Chapel-en-le-Frith

Posted on 29th September 2014

Police have issued an appeal for information after a suspicious incident in Chapel on Friday September 26.

They are also trying to reassure local people that Facebook rumours are exaggerated.

Last Friday a 10-year-old local boy reported that he had been approached by a man who was the passenger in a green vehicle.

The incident happened at about 3.30pm on Eaves Road near the memorial park.  The driver shouted to the boy and the passenger got out of the vehicle and walked towards him.  He held out his arms but didn’t touch the boy and didn’t chase him.

The man was described as being white, with dark hair and stubble.  He was wearing a dark hoodie.

Officers have spoken to two men who were seen near the Royal Oak and they have been eliminated from enquiries.  Officers are sure they were not the men involved.

Some CCTV footage in the area has been checked and enquiries are continuing.

Anyone who has any information should contact the police on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
