A SICKO in a Peppa Pig mask allegedly tried to lure children from a playground – before speeding off in a grubby Ford Transit.
Kids fled after the weirdo beckoned to them as they played near woodland in Ipswich, Suffolk.
Cops have launched a manhunt for the masked fiend – who fled in a white Ford Transit-style van before parents could take down the registration number.
Local councillor Tracey Grant fumed: “You never know what this man is doing, it must be a concern for parents.
“The best thing to do is to call police straight away, they can get down there quite quickly.
“They would rather go to a well-intentioned call to find nothing than not go and it be something.
“Also, if you see someone getting in a car, try and take down the registration plate.”
Councillor Bob Hall added: “Thankfully, the children had the sense not to go with this man.

“These incidents are not regular occurrences but it is something we have to be vigilant about and watchful.
“I would like to remind parents to teach their children not to go with these sorts of people. I am just really glad no-one has been harmed.”
A Suffolk Police spokesman said “Anyone with similar reports of such an incident are asked to contact us on 101, quoting reference 37/54088/19.”
