COPS have launched a probe after a number of teenage girls were approached by a man in a car on the same day.

The incidents happened on Saturday 17 September at two addresses in the Grangemouth area.

A 15-year-old girl was approached on Moray Place at around 4pm
Later that night, a group of girls were stopped on Oldwalls Place

At around 4pm, a 15-year-old girl was allegedly approached by a man driving a saloon type car, possible a Vauxhall Vectra or Astra in Moray Place.

Similarly a man with the same description stopped his car and spoke with a group of girls on Oldwalls Place, near to Charlotte Dundas Court.

The man is described as black, being around 6ft 2 ins, of slim build and short cropped hair.

He is said to have spoken with a foreign accent and was wearing a blue surgical mask which he removed when speaking to the girls.

The man had been wearing a green jacket and baggy blue jeans.

Police are now appealing for information and have said officers are working to find the man involved.

They are asking anyone how may have private CCTV or dash-cam footage to get in touch with the force.

Community Sergeant Iain Duncan said: “We understand incidents like this can be concerning for the local community and I would like to give reassurance that officers are working to trace the man involved.

“I would ask anyone who may have seen him or know of him approaching anyone to get in touch.

“In particular if you have private CCTV or dash-cam footage that might help with our enquiries please make contact with us.
