Nelson Police appealed to the public for sightings of a man who approached a 10-year-old girl and tried to lure her into his 4WD, Thursday afternoon.

The attempt to convince the girl occurred near the intersection of Aranui Road and Toru Street just after 4.30pm.

A man in a black 4WD tried to entice the girl into his vehicle as she was walking on Aranui Road. The girl refused to get in, and got home safely without further incident.

Authorities indicated the vehicle having a spare wheel on the back and bull bars with spotlights on the front.

No registration number was noted or identified.

The man is described as being in his 40's with curly red hair and is of thin build — has pale skin.

Police are making inquiries into this incident but ask that anyone with information call 105 and quote the event number P047044956.
