CCTV footage released after terrifying attempted abduction
A woman was grabbed from behind and attacked in a terrifying attempted abduction in a Worcester supermarket car park, police have revealed. CCTV footage of a man wanted in connection with the attack has been released.
Detectives have warned that a man who tried to abduct a woman in a Worcester car park could pose a "serious risk" to the public.
The man grabbed the woman from behind early on Sunday morning as she took a short cut through the Asda car park in Lowesmoor - but ran off when she struggled.
Det Insp Andy Price, from Worcester CID, urged anyone who recognises him to get in touch immediately.
We do not know what the man’s motives were for assaulting the woman and we are thankful he has stopped it after just a few seconds.
However, we are concerned this man could pose a serious risk to the public and we need to find him as soon as possible. As such we are releasing footage of a man caught on CCTV at the time of the incident.
We need to speak to him at the earliest opportunity because we believe he could play a central role in our investigation.
If anyone knows who he is, then please contact us straightaway. I would also like to appeal to the man directly to contact us himself.
