Police are hoping to speak with a man who allegedly offered a nine-year-old girl a ride home today.

The girl was walking home from school in Flaxmere this afternoon when the man, who was driving a blue car, pulled over on Peterhead Avenue between 3 and 3.30pm.

He is described as having white hair, a white moustache and a white beard.

He had four other students from a local school in the car at the time.

The school has been contacted and no other issues have been raised, but police would still like to speak to the man.

Anyone with information should contact Hawke's Bay Police on 06 381 0700.
