Police search for suspicious man

Police are looking for a suspicious man who offered a lift to a 13-year-old girl in Chisholm late last month.

They said in a statement that the teenager had been waiting at the bus stop on Heagney Crescent, when a man wearing a dark cloth over his face approached her about 7.55pm on June 24.

He offered to drop the girl at the Chisholm shopping precinct in his car, but she ignored the man and left.  

ACT Policing said the man pulled the fabric down from his face when he approached the girl, did not threaten the girl during the incident and there was no indication he intended to harm her.
