POLICE are reviewing CCTV footage after a woman attempted to lure a Kidderminster school student into her car by offering them sweets.

Emails were sent to parents at Holy Trinity School in Kidderminster on Monday (September 28) after a student was approached by a stranger while walking home from an after school club last week.

The unknown woman, who was described as being around 40 years old and 5ft 10 tall with grey-ish curly hair, told the student there were sweets in her car and to get in the vehicle.

The email sent to parents, which has been seen by The Shuttle, reads: "Please be advised that a student was approached by a female stranger (over 40 years, grey-ish curly hair, tall 5ft 10) whilst walking home from an after school activity last week.

"The student was approached and told there were sweets in the car (dark grey small car) and to get into the car. Obviously the student didn't and continued to walk quickly home.

"The incident has been reported to the police and they are taking it very seriously.

"Please tell your children so that they are aware of the incident and also to be very aware of those around them walking to and from school."

The incident comes after several recent reports in Worcester involving children being approached by strangers.

Police confirmed they are investigating the Kidderminster incident and officers are now reviewing CCTV footage in the area.

Safer neighbourhood inspector Dave King said: “We are investigating thoroughly including visits to gain any relevant information and viewing any CCTV that is present in the area.

“We have additional officers on patrol to reassure members of public and I would encourage you to speak with the officers on patrol with any concerns you may have.

“We do not believe the incident is linked to the previous incidents reported in Worcester."
