“Officers are currently collating the reports and I would ask anyone with information – especially any CCTV or dashcam footage – to come forward.
“Were you walking or driving in any of these areas yesterday evening? Did you see anyone acting in a manner that seemed unusual, suspicious or untoward? Any details you’re able to provide could help our investigation.”
