Thames Valley Police have released an e-fit of a man they're looking for over the attempted kidnap of an 18-year-old girl in Reading.

The teenager was walking along Liebenrood Road some time between 10pm and 10:23pm when a car pulled up beside her.

The driver wound down his window and asked if she wanted a lift. When she said no he opened the door and grabbed the woman's arm and tried to pull her into the car.

The woman pushed the man away and ran to her home and called police.

The man is described as white, in his mid-forties, with short brown hair and was clean shaven. He was wearing a long-sleeved T-shirt and dark-coloured gloves.

The car he was driving was described as a small, dark blue, four-door vehicle with left hand drive, similar to a Citroen X1.

PC Sarah Holloway said: "Incidents of this nature are extremely rare and I would urge anyone with information to come forward and help us with our enquiries as soon as possible."

Anyone with information should call PC Sarah Holloway via the 24-hour Police Enquiry Centre on 101. People who wish to give information anonymously can call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111
