Police appeal for information following suspicious incident in Baughurst

POLICE are appealing for information after an 11-year-old boy was offered a lift home by an unknown woman in Baughurst on Thursday (September 29).

The boy was walking along Brimpton Road close to the Hurst Leisure Centre shortly before 1pm, when he was approached by an older model, blue coloured vehicle with scratches down the passenger side, possibly a Vauxhall Zafira.

The driver, a woman he did not know, sounded her horn a number of times, waved the boy over and offered him a lift home.

He declined and walked on. The woman did not make any physical contact with the boy and drove off.

The boy described the woman as white, with pale skin and wrinkles, possibly aged in her 60's or 70's. 

She was medium build and wearing a black hat, with grey hair in a bun with net underneath.

The woman, thought to be aged in her 60s or 70s was wearing glasses, a white or grey coloured dress with sleeves that came most of the way down the arm.

Hampshire police officers in the Northern Investigations team are working to establish the exact circumstances of the incident.

Anyone who may have seen what happened or heard the woman beeping her horn in the area should contact DC Thomas Prutz at Basingstoke Police Station by calling 101 or call the Crimestoppers charity anonymously on 0800 555 111.
