Police Investigate Attempted Abduction
Police are investigating a suspected attempted abduction in Southampton of a 17-year-old girl.
The girl was walking along a footpath which runs between Middle Road and St Monica Road, Sholing, Southampton on Good Friday, April 6 at approximately 10.50am when a man approached her.
The man grabbed her arm and tried to get her to come with him but she managed to break free and run off to a friend’s house. A 47-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the incident and has been bailed until on Wednesday May 2.
