Wickford: Attempted Abduction Of Teen
Essex Police have released an e-fit of a man they want to speak to after the attempted abduction of a teenage girl.
Back on the 14th of March a 16 year old girl was walking along Salcott Crescent in Wickford when a car pulled up alongside her and a man grabbed her arm, trying to pull her in.
Investigating Officer, Dc Ben Beetson, said: 'We are still trying to ascertain whether this incident was down to high jinx or something more sinister.
'Thankfully, the victim was uninjured but was obviously left very shocked.
'We’re hoping that someone can help us to identify the car driver from this efit and possibly both men from the descriptions provided.'
The car driver is described as white, in his late teens had had a closely-shaved head with a scar running on the left-hand side of his face from eye to cheek and at the time, he was loosely wearing a red scarf.
A man in the passenger seat who tried to grab the girl is described as white, approximately six foot tall and wore matching grey tracksuit bottoms and a zip-up hoodie while his face was covered by a black scarf. He spoke with an Irish accent.
The car is thought to be a hatchback, similar to a VW Golf, with rear-tinted windows and a loud exhaust. It is believed the car’s registration ends in an ‘x’.
Anyone with information is urged to contact detectives at Basildon police station on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
