We’re appealing for witnesses and information following an incident near Ryde, Isle of Wight.
It was reported that at around 9pm on Tuesday 9 February a 17-year-old girl was grabbed by the arm by a man she did not know.
This took place by the bus stop beside the Tesco car park, just off the A3055 Brading Road.
The girl was able to shake the man off before entering the Tesco store.
