Det Sgt Rodgers confirmed a Deniliquin man had been interviewed by police but not charged over the allegations.
‘‘(A man) was interviewed but was not charged with any criminal offences,’’ Det Sgt Rodgers said.
‘‘He will now be monitored (by police).
‘‘There have been no further incidences reported.’’
A man was first reported to police as having allegedly approached two young girls near the East End Store about 12.30pm on Saturday, September 21.
He is alleged to have said inappropriate things to both girls.
The girls were reportedly followed before they went to a nearby residence to seek assistance.
A post by a parent on Facebook prompted more parents to come forward with similar reports, according to Deniliquin Police Inspector Peter Hayes.
