Lincoln school warns students of suspicious man

Police have been into the school

A school in Lincoln has issued a warning to students after a bald man allegedly stopped and had inappropriate conversations with people in the area.

St Peter and St Paul Catholic Voluntary Academy on Western Avenue in Lincoln said police have been into the school to warn of a suspicious character in the area.

Police said they have been into Lincoln schools after two incidents on January 22 and extra patrols are in place around school times. Local schools have been informed.

One incident refers to a man asking a 16-year-old boy if he wanted to buy meat, which happened on Westwick Drive at around 3.20pm. Police said this has been recorded as suspicious activity.

On the same day at around 3.10pm, a man asked an 11-year-old girl to get into his car on Moorland avenue.

Police said the man in both incidents is bald with a tattoo on his neck and is believed to have been driving a white Hyundai.
