A HORRIFIED mother claims a creepy man tried to kiss her two-year-old daughter and then told her he “would love to take her to bed.”
Katie Genter, 25, was taking toddler Peighton to her nursery school in Bransholme, Kingston upon Hull, when the elderly stranger approached them.

Katie’s mum Samantha told Hull Live that the man allegedly told the child “give me a kiss” and “I’d love to take her to bed.”
According to Samantha, Katie started screaming and told the man to get away from her daughter – before the stranger’s female friend ushered him away.
Incredibly, local cops have told the distraught mother that the disturbing incident was NOT a crime.
Humberside Police say they treat cases of this nature “incredibly seriously” and that NO offence took place, reports Hull Live .
Grandmother Samantha said: “My daughter Katie was walking with her two-year-old daughter Peighton to nursery school near her home on Monday lunchtime when she was accosted by a man.
“My daughter Katie shouted at the man to get off her.
“He laughed and said he would love to take the baby to bed. She was furious and carried her, now screaming, daughter away from this man.
“She was pushing a dolls pram at the time. He said he’d love to take her to bed. My granddaughter was hysterical.”
Katie took a photograph of the man as he left the scene – however an officer told her in an interview that “there was nothing he could do about it.”
Samantha said Katie was told “this was not a crime”.

She said: “How can it not be a crime to do these things? It’s not enough.
“How in 2019 can a man like this be able to accost an innocent two-year-old, try to kiss her, say he would love to take her to bed and not be dealt with in anyway at all?
“That man is still out there.”
Mark Peasgood, a local Neighbourhood Inspector, also confirmed the creepy man was free to roam the streets.
He said: “Understandably parents will be concerned when someone not known to them speaks to their child, and we do take reports of this nature incredibly seriously, carrying out enquiries to establish the circumstances.
“In this case, we have spoken to the mother who was with her daughter when the elderly couple were passing and the man spoke to the child.
“No physical contact between the elderly man and the child has been disclosed and while no offences have occurred, we would always advise people to call us with concerns.”
