Stockton Police appeal to trace man

Cleveland Police are investigating two reports of separate incidents in the Hardwick area of Stockton involving a silver car with dark windows. The car is of similar size to a Volkswagen Golf or Ford Focus.

Two young girls separately reported that on the 18th October and 22nd October they were asked by a man to get into a vehicle, when they refused the car drove off.

It is believed that there was more than one person in the car during the incident on the 18th.

The girls are of similar age as the victim in the robbery and sexual assault, which took place at around 4.20pm on Tuesday 23rd October on common land near to Chadwick Walk.
