Police said a middle-aged woman approached an eight-year-old girl at some time between 3.30pm and 4pm in St Adrian’s Close in the Berkshire town.

The woman is said to have grabbed the little girl before letting her go.

She then left the scene.

The second incident took place at about 3.30pm in Wessex Way – which connects with St Adrian’s Close.

A boy and a girl, aged 14 and seven, were approached by a woman in a car.

She offered them a lift in her grey Vauxhall Zafira and then when they refused she tried to persuade them.

After the children continued to refuse, the woman drove away.

The woman has been described as white, aged in her forties and with a British accent.

Police say she was tall with a slim build and had grey hair.


A Thames Valley Police spokesman said: “TVP is aware of two suspicious incidents, which occurred today in Maidenhead.

“It is believed that the incidents are linked.”

If you have any information, please call Thames Valley Police on 101, quoting reference 860.
