Victoria Police have released a sketch of the suspect they believe attempted to lure a young child from a neighbourhood park on Monday.

According to police, a 12-year-old girl reported she and a friend were approached by a man who tried to get them to go to a secluded part of Cecelia Ravine Park, located between Gorge Rd and Burnside Roads East. Neither child was injured and the girls ran away and told an adult.

  • Caucasian
  • Approximately 25-years-old
  • Over six feet tall
  • With straight, dark brown hair, a moustache and light goatee
  • Wearing a dark coloured ball cap, blue denim frayed shorts, black Adidas runners with three white stripes
