Main article content
We are appealing for any witnesses, or anyone with information, to come forward after an attempted abduction in Farnborough.
It comes after a teenage girl, who was walking home from attending College alongside Alexandra Road between Boundary Road and Reading Road in Farnborough, was subject to an attempted kidnapping by an unknown person.
The incident occurred between 3.30pm and 3.45pm on Friday 9 September.
It is reported that a vehicle had been seen to drive past the teenager on multiple occasions during a 10-minute period, before a man exited a vehicle and made an attempt to grab the girls arm and drag her towards his car.
The girl managed to break-free and flee from the man, before she was seen to enter a vehicle and was driven away from the scene.
The man is described as being white, late 20s / early 30s, approximately 5ft 10ins tall with light brown hair slicked to the right-hand side. He was seen wearing a grey sweatshirt and grey jogging bottoms at the time of the incident.
We have conducted initial enquiries in the local area but are now turning to the public.
Were you in the area at the time? Did you witness what happened? Perhaps you have dash-cam footage in the moments leading up to or during the incident?
Anyone with information is asked to contact police by calling 101 and quoting 44220368346.
