Kent Police are investigating two 'suspicious incidents' involving a man, that they believe could be linked. On Saturday, June 1, a man on a bicycle is reported to have followed a boy as he walked to and from a shop in Palmerston Avenue, Chatham.

The boy did not know the man and told his parents when he got home, who then called the police. Kent Police was contacted again on Thursday, June 13, after a woman and her child were distressed after they were approached by a man they did not know, near the junction of Symons Avenue and Redvers Road.

The man then ran from the scene towards White Road and Glencoe Road. In both incidents the suspect is described as black, clean-shaven, around five feet and eleven inches tall and of slim build. He was also wearing a green and blue football shirt.

In one incident he was also described as wearing black jogging bottoms and black slider styled shoes. Police want to speak to the man involved. They are urging anyone with information to call 01634 792209, quoting reference 46/98334/24.
