Man charged after two child approach incidents in Blacktown

A man has been charged after two child approach incidents in Sydney’s west, NSW Police say.

In March 2018, two girls, aged 10 and 11, were on Hill End Road, Doonside, when a man driving a Toyota Hilux pulled over and engaged them in an inappropriate conversation.

An adult observed the exchange and challenged the man, who drove from the scene.

In a second incident, about 6.30am on Tuesday (12 June 2018), the same two girls were walking on Hill End Road, when it’s alleged the same man in the Hilux did a U-turn and confronted them again.

The mother of one of the girls was called and parked her car in front of the utility. The utility driver fled the scene, with the front of the ute allegedly making contact with the woman in the process.

Following inquiries, about 1.30pm yesterday (Thursday 14 June 2018), a 41-year-old man attended Blacktown Police Station where he was arrested.

He was charged with two counts of intimidation and one count of common assault.

He was given conditional bail to appear at Blacktown Local Court on Wednesday 11 July 2018.
