OFFICERS have halted investigations into suspicious activity in Knaphill due to a lack of evidence.
Detectives from Surrey Police had been looking into a number of reported approaches to young girls in and around the village by a man said to be driving an “old style green car.”
Reports from across May led to officers making extensive inquiries in the neighbourhood.
Door to door sweeps of Victoria Road, near to where one girl was allegedly approached while on her way to school, were also conducted.
Two men, a 27-year-old man from Woking and a 47-year-old man from the Chertsey area, were arrested in connection with the operation, but both have had their bail cancelled with no further action to be carried out.
West Surrey Detective Chief Superintendent Helen Collins said: “We have had an overwhelming response from the public during our investigation and I would like to thank local residents for their support.
“The community can be reassured that a thorough investigation has taken place and following extensive enquiries officers have found nothing that would suggest there is or was any on-going risk to the general public.
“Surrey Police will always investigate any reports of suspicious activity and I would encourage anyone with any concerns to call 101 or 999 if an incident is on-going.”
