Police are continuing “high visibility” enquiries into an alleged approach made by a man to an Angus pupil outside her school.
But Police Scotland has said there is “no evidence to suggest a link” between the Carnoustie investigation and a parallel probe into a similar incident in Alyth.
Meanwhile, teachers at Burnside Primary School in Ravensby Road have been asked to reinforce the concept of “stranger danger” to their charges.
A spokesman for Angus Council said: “Teachers have spoken with children at the school about the importance ofpersonal safety following an incident in Carnoustie, which is now being investigated by the police.”
A spokeswoman for Police Scotland said the incidents were being investigated separately.
She said: “There is no information at this time to suggest that the Alyth incident is linked to the one in Carnoustie.”
She added that officers were making their presence felt in the Carnoustie community.
“Inquiries are continuing,” she said. “Officers have carried out door-to-door inquiries and have provided advice to the local school community. There are also high visibility patrols in the area and we would ask anyone with any information to contact Tayside Division on 101.”
The mother of the little girl earlier spoke of how the incident had left her daughter “shaken” and “petrified”.
The force said the man attempted to engage the girl in conversation as she walked along Ravensby Road between 1.15 and 1.30pm.
A police spokesman added: “Officers have carried out to door-to- door inquiries and have provided advice to the local school community.”
