POLICE are investigating a report that a woman driving a silver jeep made a suspicious approach to a teenage girl and her friend in the vicinity of the Old Omagh Road, Ballygawley on Saturday evening.
The incident happened around 7pm.
The mother of the 14-year-old girl claimed that the women tried to get her daughter and another child into the jeep by asking them to show her the way to a filling station.
She added that the woman was “very persistent” but the children knew not to get into the vehicle.
A police spokesperson confirmed that enquiries into the reported approach are ongoing.
A similar incident took place nearly two weeks after three children were approached by a suspicious male in Drumquin.
The incident occurred on May 2 in the Drumnaforbe Heights area of the village.
Sergeant Joanne Bownes said, “The man was described as being elderly with white hair and wearing a red pullover. He was driving a 4×4 and made off in the direction of Drumquin village.
“Police are appealing for witnesses. The number to call is 101, quoting reference 495 of 03/05/17.”
