An unknown male driving a dark purple four door sedan stopped next to the 15 year old female victim and told her to get in the car. The male was described as dark skinned, early 30’s of a solid build and wearing a dark grey t-shirt

Circumstance

At about 4:25pm on Thursday the 14th of November 2019 the young person was walking home from the bus stop at Onehunga shopping centre in full school uniform.

As the young person walked down Arthur Street towards Quadrant Street on the South side of the street (odd side of the street) a vehicle has slowed down next to her on the same side of the road. (We have had a number of suspicious approaches in the Trafalgar Street area in the last two weeks)

The young person has described the vehicle as:

- 4 door sedan
- dark purple
- older model
- no tints or hub caps
- fairly standard, nothing special about it

The passenger side window was already down. The vehicle has stopped and the driver and sole occupant has told the young person "get in the car".

The driver was described as:

- male
- dark skin but unsure of race
- short dark hair
- no facial hair
- solid build
- early 30's
- wearing a grey t-shirt

The young person immediately walked down a nearby driveway and contacted a family member to come and get her.

The male has waited in his vehicle at the top of the driveway for approximately 15-20 seconds before driving West on Arthur Street towards Quadrant.

We are urging members of the public and students to be vigilant around this activity and to call 111 immediately if approached by anyone in a vehicle matching the above descriptions. We are also wanting to identify a black van with tinted windows seen in the same area following students.
