Police are investigating after two boys were approached by a man at an Aberdeen park.
The incident, at the park outside Kingsford School in Sheddocksley, was reported on Saturday afternoon and involved a man, described as being in his 30s and driving a black Mercedes. He was wearing a white T-shirt and grey trousers.
This is the third similar incident in the last week, with a 16-year-old girl being attacked on July 7 in Kingswells while delivering papers and a nine-year-old girl allegedly being followed on Dill Road in Tillydrone on Friday.
Inspector David Cowie, of the Hazlehead Community Policing Team, said: “We are currently carrying out inquiries to establish the full circumstances surrounding this incident and would encourage anyone who was in the area at the time to please get in touch if you have information quoting ref. no. 3154 of July 14.
“I would also ask this man to get in touch if you recognise yourself as the person involved.
“I am aware that there has been a small number of similar incidents reported to police in the city over the past few days, albeit they are completely separate and different in nature.
“Extra officers were deployed to Kingswells at the weekend to carry out further inquiries after a 16-year-old girl was approached by a man.
“Let me stress that when incidents like these occur extensive enquiries are carried out until we can establish for sure what happened and to verify the intention of those involved.
“The vast majority of reports we receive are often found to be innocent and borne out of people simply having the best interests of children at heart – it is extremely rare that a person will have sinister intentions.
“If this is found to be the case they will be robustly dealt with and safety measures put in place.”
