Girl 'approached by man in car'
Gardai are investigating the suspicious approach of a lone man to a child on her way to school.
The 10-year-old girl reported being asked to get into a white car which pulled up beside her on the Boghall Road, in Bray, Co Wicklow.
She was on her way to school shortly after 8.30am when the reported incident occurred.
It is alleged she got into the car but got back out again and made off when the man returned to the driver seat.
Detectives said the girl was unharmed and continued on her way to Bray School Project, a co-educational school.
Gardai in Bray said the car may have been a new Volkswagen Golf.
They have appealed for witnesses to come forward.
