A MAN has been charged after allegedly approaching a child in a predatory fashion at Gundagai this week.

Just after 8pm on Tuesday, a 15-year-old boy was riding his scooter home along O I Bell Drive when he was approached by a man driving a Nissan Patrol.

Police have been told the man allegedly started to speak to the boy and offered him a ride.

Officers attached to Cootamundra Local Area Command were contacted and commenced an investigation.

Following inquiries, officers attended a venue on Park Road, Luddenham and arrested a 60-year-old man.

He was taken to Penrith Police Station and charged with intimidation and granted bail.
