Concern after 11-year-old boy is approached by strangers

Police are investigating three reported suspicious incidents in Windsor - two involving children.

On Tuesday, January 14 at 8.25am an 11-year-old boy from a Windsor school was approached by two men in a dark blue Vauxhall Corsa, in the Hatch Lane area near the junction with Clewer Hill Road.

The boy declined a lift but his jumper was touched by one of the men. The driver of the car is described as white while the front seat passenger was black or mixed race.

At 8.22am on Monday, a women reported a black Vauxhall Corsa driving alongside her in Perrycroft and stopping, although the occupants did not approach her.

A 12-year-old child reported two men pulling up next to him in a blue van in Dedworth Lane on Wednesday.

Police now say they have received a number of calls from members of the public.

Superintendent Kate Ford, commander for Windsor and Maidenhead, said that incidents like these were always taken seriously.

She said: "Since the initial incident on January 14, there have been no reports of people having been spoken to or having had any physical contact with the strangers."

But she said anyone who did experience anything suspicious should report it immediately, adding: "There will be an increased high visibility presence in the area to reassure members of the public."
