Appeal for information following suspicious behaviour in Northwich
Main article content
Police are appealing for information in relation to a man acting suspiciously in Northwich.
At approximately 1.15pm on Sunday 6 June a man driving a sports car slowed down on Manchester Road to ask an 18-year-old woman if she wanted a lift.
She ignored him and he turned the car around onto the other side of the road and repeatedly asked her to get into his car.
She continued to ignore him and phoned a friend as she walked to a place of safety, and he drove away.
She then reported the behaviour to police.
The man is described as black, with black dread locks and wearing a big black coat. He was driving a matt black coloured car which had lots of smoke coming out of the exhaust.
Officers are conducting a number of lines of enquiry as part of their investigation and are asking the public to come forward with information.
Sergeant Andrew Cooper, of Northwich Local Policing Unit, said: “Since the incident was reported we have undertaken numerous enquiries including reviewing CCTV footage to help identify the vehicle and the driver.
“As part of our investigation we are keen to hear from anyone who may have been in the area at the time and saw the car, or perhaps they know the identity of the driver, to get in touch.
“The young lady did the right thing by ignoring this man and reporting it to police as soon as possible. This appears at this time to be an isolated incident.”
If you have information please contact Cheshire Constabulary on 101 and quote IML 1006450.
