POLICE in Wick are conducting enquires following reports of a man acting in a potentially suspicious manner in a car park off Ackergill Street.
The man's behaviour caused concern to several children playing in the car park at Noss Primary School at approximately 10pm on Tuesday, August 8.
He did not make contact with the children or speak to them but officers are now working to establish the circumstances.
The man has been described as being about 5ft 6in tall and of thin build.
He appeared to be about 30-years-old with dark skin, a black moustache or beard and short black hair.
At the time he was wearing a blue furry jumper, black shoes, white earphones and he was possibly wearing glasses.
Inspector Marlene MacDonald said: "Local officers have been carrying out enquiries in the area to help provide reassurance to the public.
"It should be noted that the matter may be innocuous but we are keen to establish what has happened.
"If the man involved recognises himself from the description then please get in touch.
"I would also urge anyone who may have seen someone behaving in a potentially suspicious manner in the area to make contact."
