Officers are appealing for witnesses and information following a report of an attempted kidnap incident in Basingstoke.
It was reported that at around 8.15am on Wednesday 28 September, a teenage girl was walking along Scotney Road, just before the turning into Maple Crescent.
A man was riding a bike behind the girl and moments later, a second man in a plain white van drove up next to her and attempted to pull her into the vehicle.
The man on the bike had attempted to push her. The girl was able to run away from the scene.
The first suspect, who was riding a dark coloured bicycle, is described as being taller than 5ft 10ins. He had dark brown hair.
He was of small build and was wearing a black hoodie, black shoes and had a stubble beard.
The second suspect, who was driving a van, was wearing a black beanie, a red long sleeved T-shirt and jeans.
Officers have been carrying out extensive enquiries following this report and local neighbourhood officers are carrying out patrols in the area and will continue to do so throughout the week.
We are now appealing to the public for help as officers investigate this report.
