Police appeal after child approach near Blue Mountains

Police are appealing for information after a child approach in the Blue Mountains area yesterday.

About 3pm (Saturday 20 July 2019), a 12-year-old boy was riding his bike on a footpath of Hawkesbury Road, Winmalee, when a vehicle stopped in the road, and its driver – an unknown man – asked the boy if he wanted a ride.
