DETECTIVES are investigating the possible attempted abduction of a teenage girl near Doncaster.

The incident was between Haxey and Westwoodside, North Lincolnshire, as the 16-year-old girl walked in a rural location last Thursday.

A dark green coloured five door Ford hatchback that is thought to be left-hand drive, pulled up alongside the girl, grabbed her by the arm and tried to pull her into the car after she refused a lift, it is claimed.

The teenager managed to break free from his grip and the car drove away.

The suspect is described as white, aged in his late 40s or early 50s with a tanned complexion, full dark coloured facial stubble and leathery skin.

He had dark, messy and spiky hair, a deep voice and spoke with a South Yorkshire accent.

He wore a mainly white shirt which had a blue and red chequered pattern on it with the sleeves rolled up and a green quilted waistcoat or body warmer over the top.

Police have released an e-fit and are appealing for information about the incident.

Det Ch Insp Bob Clark said: “We are continuing to treat this as a serious incident and would like to remind females in particular to be vigilant when out walking alone.”
