Police are investigating an incident near a Glasgow school after a 13-year-old girl raised the alarm just days after a fellow pupil was told to get in a stranger's car. 

Officers said no attempt was made to approach the girl involved in the second incident but she reported overhearing worrying comments made by a man on Great Western Road. 

It comes after a male approached a 12-year-old boy in the same area and told him to get in his car last Thursday.  

It's understood the driver told the first year pupil that he'd been sent to pick him up from school because his mum was in hospital. Both children attend Glasgow Academy. 

School has urged parents and pupils to be vigilant with a post on social media sharing the message "Say no to strangers". 


The post added: "Police Scotland are investigating reports of a male who approached a 12-year-old child in the West End of Glasgow. 

"The police have appealed for any dashcam footage from 15:30 to 16:30 on Thursday 20th January 2022 from South Woodside Road, approaching the Kelvinbridge Subway Park and Ride. 

"If you have any information, please contact Police Scotland on 101 and use incident number 2546 20 January." 

In a letter to parents and carers on Wednesday, rector Matthew Pearce said: "I would like to update you on the reported incident on Thursday, January 20.

"Police Scotland informed us today that, following investigation, there is no criminality, risk or cause for concern relating to the incident.

"A separate incident was reported to Police Scotland this morning and the matter is currently being investigated by them.

A Police Scotland spokesperson said: “We were made aware of a 13-year-old girl having reported comments overheard on Great Western Road during the morning of Wednesday, 26 January which caused her concern. 

“No attempt was made to approach her and enquiries are now ongoing to establish the full circumstances.”
