Police in the Vale of Glamorgan are appealing for information after a man allegedly beckoned a young boy over to his car.
Officers said the driver was seen sitting in a car parked next to St Athan Community Centre in Lougher Place yesterday evening.
A spokesman for South Wales Police said the man shouted at the nine-year-old boy, who had been playing on his scooter.
Police would like to speak to a man described as white, aged 40-45, with stubble on his face, who was wearing a flat cap with a checked pattern.
The car is described as small and silver - possibly a Peugeot 207 - and had a cloth Welsh flag attached to the aerial.
