Police have arrested a man following a suspicious approach to a young person in Kelvin Grove yesterday, Thursday 18 May.
The man allegedly threatened the young person in an attempt to get her to get into the vehicle, however she ran away and was unharmed.
A 50-year-old man is due to appear in Palmerston North District Court on 25 May, on charges relating to the incident.
Police have received four reports over the last two weeks about suspicious approaches to young people across Palmerston North.
Enquiries into these incidents are ongoing, including whether there is a link to the man arrested today.
Further charges cannot be ruled out.
Police would like to thank the public for the information received to date and we would also like to encourage anyone who has not yet contacted us with information that may be relevant to do so.
You can do so by calling 105 and quoting file number 230510/3058.
