The victim was walking along Cannon Street towards New Change on Friday 27th September around 8am.
She was grabbed from behind by a man who then tried to drag her off the footpath and up some steps into a small park area. The girl suffered some bruising and was left in a state of shock. She was able to fight him off and made her way to the nearest bus stop.
