Witness Appeal on Suspicious Incident in Stroud

At shortly after 9.30pm on Friday May 11th a 14-year-old boy was walking along Folly Lane, in Stroud.

When he reached the junction with Lovedays Mead he noticed that a white car with a male driver had slowed down alongside him, and the driver spoke to him and offered him a lift.

The boy refused and carried on walking, but the driver pulled over a short distance ahead and got out of the car and approached the boy on foot.

He placed his hand on the boy's shoulder and again offered him a lift. The boy, feeling very alarmed, hit the man with a snooker cue he was carrying, before running home and telling his parents what had happened.

The man was described as being white, between 35 and 40 years of age, five foot 10 inches tall and of slim build. He had dark brown hair and a low pitched voice. He was wearing a dark jacket, grey trousers and black shoes.

His car was a white saloon which possibly had alloy wheels.

Anyone with information is asked to ring police on 0845 090 1234 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111 quoting incident number 578 of May 11.
