Update: Two girls approached by a man in Ystrad Mynach

On Friday 8th November 2019, we appealed for information after it was reported that two girls, a 10-year-old and a 16-year-old, were approached by an unknown man, whilst walking along Commercial Street, Ystrad Mynach at approximately 8.30am on Wednesday 6th November 2019.

It is believed the man approached the girls, tried to engage them in conversation and followed them for a short distance.

Sergeant Emma Sowrey, of Gwent Police's Caerphilly North local neighbourhood policing team, said; "While this incident was distressing for the children involved, they were not harmed in any way.

Following our appeal on Friday 8th November 2019, a man has been arrested in relation to this incident and he has since been released under investigation.
