POLICE are asking the community for assistance after a 12-year-old boy was approached at Dural on Monday.
The boy got off a bus at Old Northern Road at around 3.30pm, and was walking on Kenthurst Road when he saw a four-door black car with two men in the front seats.
The driver of the parked vehicle gestured for the child to come up to his vehicle, but the child ran back to the bus stop and called his father.
Both men are both described as bald, with the first man of caucasian appearance and the second man was described as having a dark complexion.
Police are encouraging parents to remind their children of ways they can stay safe when they are on their own.
People with information can contact Castle Hill Police on 9680 5399 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
