WARNING: Child suspiciously approached by male in Dublin

Parents are being warned after a child was approached in a suspicious manner by a male stranger yesterday in the Clonsilla and Blanchardstown areas of Dublin 15.

The gardai have confirmed the suspicious approach of a child in the Mount Symon Green area of Clonsilla at approximately 4pm yesterday, reports the Irish Mirror. 

A message was sent to parents by Scoil Mhuire Senior School in Clonsilla, which was forwarded on to Dublin West councillor David McGuinness.

The message read:

"Following an incident in the Clonsilla area last night where a male stranger in a red car approached a pupil of our school, we are asking parents to be vigilant with regard to child safety at all times. The Gardai in Blanchardstown are dealing with the incident and taking the necessary precautions. Thank you."
