Victoria police have released a sketch of a man wanted in connection with a child luring incident on Monday at Cecelia Ravine Park.
According to police, just after 4 p.m., a 12-year-old girl reported that she and her friend were approached by a man. The man tried to get the girl to go to a secluded part of the Cecelia Ravine Park.
The girls ran away and got help from a parent. The 12-year-old girl was not injured.
The suspect is described as a Caucasian man, 25-years-old, over six-feet-tall, with dark brown, straight hair. He was wearing a dark-coloured ball cap, blue denim frayed shorts and was carrying a basketball. His shoes were Adidas black runners with three white stripes.
