The man is described as being of Black African descent, and was walking behind the students as they were on their way to school in the Low Moor area - near to the Royal Public House on New Works Road. The man was wearing a black baseball style cap, a sports
jacket and dark shoes. Students report that, as they increased their walking pace, the man did the same. This came to the attention of a passer by, who spoke to the girls to check on their wellbeing. At this point, the man waved at the girls, turned and walked
in the opposite direction. Both students are fine, but we have reported the incident to the police and will be assisting them by providing additional staff presence in the areas around school at the start and end of the day.
