Police want to speak to man about 'suspicious incidents'

Police in Barry are appealing for information following a series of suspicious incidents involving the driver of an old-style green coloured Ford Fiesta.

Police say he has approached both children and adults.

The first incident happened just before 12.30pm on Sunday 6th January on Rectory Road, Penarth. This was followed by another incident the next day at 9:15am on Redlands Road, Penarth, 7.30pm on Winston Road in Barry and then at 9.15pm on Fern Drive in Barry.

Police are asking anyone who may have any information regarding the man who is described as a white, balding man of stocky or chubby build between 20 to 30 years old and unshaven with a tribal tattoo on one of his arms at any of these locations around these times, to contact them on 101.

As a precautionary measure we always advise that any suspicious incidents should be reported to us.

We don’t believe there to be any need for alarm at this time but of course – as always – we encourage people to be vigilant.

– Matt Rowlands, Barry Neighbourhood Sergeant
