POLICE have issued a warning after a child was approached by a man while walking home from school.

The 11-year-old girl was walking from Campion School alone and was approached by a man next to the Skoda Garage on Berrington Road on Wednesday (December 19) at around 3.30pm.

She turned into Sydenham Drive towards her school and the man followed her. The victim ran back to Campion School where police were called.

The man is described as white, between 30 to 40-years-old, around 6ft tall, no facial hair, a wrinkled face and skinny. He was wearing a dark grey hoodie with his hood up and dark coloured tracksuit trousers. He was carrying a yellow and green beer can.

PC Adam Moran said: “We do not want to cause unnecessary alarm, but would urge parents and carers to make sure their children are aware of personal safety issues, especially if they are approached by a stranger in the street.

“Anyone who witnessed the incident in Leamington is to contact us as soon as possible please.”

Call police on 101 or ring 0800 555 111 to speak to Crimestoppers anonymously with any information.
