Nine-year-old refused and ran off to find her mother

Police are hunting a tattooed man who drove up beside a nine-year-old girl in Greatstone and told her to get into his car.

The youngster, from New Romney, was on the way to meet her mother when the car stopped next to her in Dunes Road.

The man, who had a distinctive snake tattoo on his arm, asked her get in his car.

She refused and ran off to find her mum.

The incident happened at around 3.20pm on Monday.

Inspector Bill Thornton said: “The girl did exactly the right thing; refuse to get in the car and went to find her mother who reported the incident to police.

“Officers were in the area quickly and searched for the vehicle but it was not found.

“We are now looking at CCTV opportunities from nearby shops and businesses but would like to hear from anyone who may have seen a dark blue car, possibly a people carrier, in the area – perhaps it was being driven slowly and may have attracted attention.”

The man is described as aged in his 30s, with short, spiky, black hair and was wearing a light blue zip-up jacket.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Kent Police on 101, giving reference SI/ZY/9280/13.
