A father out walking with his two and a half year old daughter in Stansted contacted police after a male van driver started acting suspiciously towards them.
A man reported that a white van approached him and his daughter on Forest Hall Road on Sunday (June 28) at around 4.20pm.
When he went over to ask what the matter was the man drove away.
As he continued walking the van driver approached again at speed whilst removing his seatbelt.
The man then picked up his daughter and turned quickly down a gravel path before returning to the main road.
