A 13-year-old girl has been attacked while walking to school in central London. The victim was grabbed from behind by a man who tried to drag her up some steps and into a small park near St Paul's Cathedral.
The young victim was left bruised and in a state of shock. She eventually managed to fight her way free, and made her way to a bus stop.
