Alleged attempted abduction of girl

POLICE were called to investigate the alleged attempted abduction of a 10-year-old girl this morning.

The girl told police she was walking near the intersection of Bergins Hill Rd and Lindsay St, Bundamba, when a man grabbed her from behind and tried to pull her towards his green sedan.

She escaped his grasp and ran to Bundamba State School, where she reported the incident immediately.

Police believe the man fled in his vehicle.

It was thought the attempted abduction occurred about 8.20am Friday.

Acting Detective Inspector Troy Salton said the girl was not physically injured.

He said police wanted to hear from anyone who saw a green, four-door sedan in the area at the time.

"So far there are no other witnesses," Insp Salton said.

"The offender had his face covered with some kind of clothing at the time."

The man was described as Caucasian, aged in his 20s with a thin build.

He was wearing a white t-shirt, black long pants and thongs.

Anyone with information should phone Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
