Woman Approached In Suspicious Incident At Bromsgrove
Police are appealing for help to trace a man driving a green coloured car who approached a woman in a suspicious incident at Bromsgrove yesterday (Thursday, 14 June).
The woman, who is in her 30s, was walking along Austin Road towards the R Z Supermarket at about 10.15am when the dark green saloon, which had a black and white collie dog in the back, drove past her and then turned round before stopping on the opposite side of the road.
The man at the wheel, who was alone, shouted across to the woman, indicating that he knew her and offered her a lift several times. However the woman did not recognise him and refused, after which he drove off towards the Morrisons store in the direction of the A38.
The man was white and described as in his late 30s or early 40s, bald or balding, and wearing round-shaped spectacles.
Inspector Terry Shore of West Mercia Police said: "This man was a complete stranger but insisted he knew the woman. She was concerned by this incident and reported it to police soon afterwards. There may be a reasonable explanation for what happened in which case we would urge the driver to contact us immediately.
"It is important that we trace him I would also appeal to anyone who saw him or the vehicle involved, or knows or thinks they know who he is, to get in touch without delay."
Witnesses should call officers at Bromsgrove CID on 101, quoting the incident reference 307-S-140612, and information can also be passed on anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
