Police are appealing for witnesses after two girls were approached by a man in Battle.
It happened between 4.30pm and 4.45pm on Monday (November 1) in Chain Lane. The two girls were playing outside when a man wearing a bright orange jacket and driving a white van approached them and offered them sweets.
The girls sensibly refused and were able to safely return home.
Inspector Aidan Cornwall of the Neighbourhood Policing Team said: "We understand the concern incidents like this can cause and we would like to reassure people that we are aware and looking into the matter.
"We will be running dedicated patrols in the area and encourage anyone with any information or concerns to get in touch with us."
Anyone who saw any suspicious behaviour in the area around that time, or who may have any relevant CCTV or doorbell footage, is asked to contact police online or by calling 101 quoting serial 1246 of 02/11.
