Police in Haringey Borough are investigating allegations that a man has approached a number of school girls in Hornsey on Monday, 18 January and attempted to convince them he was a police officer.
Between 07:50hrs and 09:00hrs, four school girls, aged between 11 and 14 years-old were approached by a man in a number of locations in the Hornsey area.
At this early stage of our enquiries the allegations are being treated as attempted abductions.
Officers have since been informed of another incident that occurred shortly before 08:00hrs on Tuesday, 19 January.
All of the girls have been spoken to by police, also spoken to relevant schools.
None of the girls were injured and the investigation is ongoing.
Reassurance patrols are being carried out in the area.
The man was not wearing a police uniform but it is understood he identified himself as a police officer.
He is described as black, aged between 20 and 30 years old and of medium build. He had short dark hair and was wearing a jacket with the hood up.
Chief Inspector Jude Beehag-Fisher, from Haringey Borough, said: “It would be unusual for police officers in plain clothes not to identify themselves by showing a warrant card, and members of the public are entitle to ask to see one.
“Any child approached by someone in the street, in similar circumstances to these incidents, that are not shown any identification that they the person is a police officer, should get away from them as quickly as possible, they should shout for help and make sure they tell a parent, teacher or other person in authority as soon as possible. In an emergency always dial 999.”
Anyone with information about the incidents can call police in Haringey via 101, or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or at crimestoppers-uk.org. In an emergency always dial 999.

Heartwarming cops share chips with man who hasn’t eaten for days

Published

on

Two police officers this evening shared their chips with a man they found on the motorway who hasn’t eaten food in days.

The caring cops showed compassion and humanity when they could have just nicked the lad and sent him off to the cells.

But instead of taking him straight into police custody they stopped off for some chips.

Showing a truly caring side of British traffic cops who often don’t get the best press.

“The cops from the Leicestershire road policing unit tweeted that they had found on motorway suspected to be an illegal immigrant into the UK.

“He’s not eaten for days and we’ve not eaten for hours, so we’ve all shared some fine English cuisine …… a bag of chips!! 👍🏻 🍟”

These truly caring officers have shown this evening that police officers have hearts and they do care about people.

Policing is not always about crime, it’s the small acts of human kindness that go a long way.

We praise these officers for their genuine out of kindness out of their own pocket.

Helen tweeted “I know you’ll probably get people complain but. Compassion, humanity and care are great qualities.”

UK Cop Humour tweeted “Fab stuff and whilst we’re on the topic of spuds: why do potatoes make good detectives? Because they keep their eyes peeled.”

ElAine tweeted “I know some people’s heads will explode at this but well done for your compassion.”

Simply policing at it’s best. What ever your views you have to admit this is compassion and humility at it’s best.

These cops truly deserve to be recognised for great policing work.

Not every job needs to be a tick box, just because it’s a suspected illegal immigrant doesn’t mean they should be treat any different.

Top job with excellent policing skills, that will have ensured this suspect didn’t cause any problems for the officers.

Full up on chips, the officers then processes this man through custody and will refer to the home office immigration services.
