Patrols upped after abduction attempt

Police patrols have been increased in North Oxford after a man tried to abduct an 11 year old girl.

It happened just before 9am on Friday 25 June 2010 on St Margaret's Road, off the Woodstock Road.  The girl managed to escape and raise the alarm.

Police are also planning to go into local schools to remind children about the dangers of contact with strangers.

Detective Constable Claire Routledge said: "I would like to reassure the local community that we believe this is an isolated incident and the neighbourhood team have been made aware and are assisting us with our investigations.

"Patrols have been increased in the area and schools officers have been made aware and will be paying visits to local schools to inform children of Stranger Danger."

The man involved is thought to have been in his 40s, around 5ft 9ins tall, with brown eyes and sandy coloured hair.  He was wearing a number of diamond rings in one ear, along with a green T-shirt and trainers.
