POLICE are warning residents to remain vigilant after a report of ‘suspicious behaviour’ in a Hampshire beauty spot.

A teenage girl reported that she was spoken to by a man in a wooded area at Royal Victoria Country Park in Netley who called her over to him.

She refused and walked off and reported the incident.

Police carried out a search of the area but found no trace of a man matching the description following the incident, at 4.40pm on Wednesday.

Any suspicious behaviour can be reported to police on 101.

Just because you are paranoid, doesn't mean some one isn't out to get you!

Oh hang on a minute.... This happened Wednesday. It is now Saturday.

almost 3 days later we are asked to remember and report things. If I saw something suspicious like an MP taking money, Over paying councillors exs,
Travellers illegalling setting up camp. I always report it.

IF I AM INFORMED.....Come on DE tell us quicker.

BTW At the town quay today I saw guys dealing drugs. ( I think they were as they looked suspicious) Do you think Hampshires finest will be down there Blues and Twos?

It's funny; I imagine this wouldn't have even been reported if it were an elderly woman! He could have wanted to ask anything at all. Nothing worth warning about here.

It may have been a completely innocent act, we will probably never know.

It's come to something where as a man, you are frightened to go anywhere
near children, in case you get labelled a pervert.

I'm guessing that the DE is reporting everything the police told them. Again I'm guessing, it has probably been publicized to avoid criticism if something actually happened at some future date not because they were concerned about this particular incident.
