POLICE SAY SPEAKER SCREAMING FACEBOOK POST IS A HOAX

Police believe a viral social media post, claiming two men had been using speakers to lure people off a Kincumber bike track and into bushland is likely a hoax.

The Facebook post, which has been circulated more than 1,000 times, alleges the speaker had been playing the sound of women screaming.

Officers say they were never called to the incident, as the post suggests.

However, they are urging residents to report anything suspicious.
