Police have launched an investigation after a 12-year-old girl was allegedly abducted outside school.

The girl was reportedly forced into a black taxi by four white men in Stourbridge around 3.15pm yesterday.

She told detectives she was in Teasdale Way, Wollescote, and reported being driven round for approximately 90 minutes before the car stopped in Clent and the girl was able to get out and run away.

A member of the public found her and helped to call police. She was shaken but unhurt.

The young girl is assisting us with this investigation and, although upset, she has not been physically hurt.

We have had no reports of anything similar in the area and this would appear to be an isolated incident.

I understand the concern and fear that such incidents raise in the community and I would urge anyone with information to contact us on 101.

– Inspector Colin Mattinson, West Midlands Police
