Detectives are appealing for information following an incident where a 12-year-old girl was grabbed by a man as she walked to school in Leeds.
They were contacted at around 9.30am today (April 23rd) by a passer-by who had seen the girl approached by the man in Old Run Road, Leeds, near to the M621 flyover a short time before.
He had followed the victim before grabbing her around the waist and carrying her for a few yards. The girl fought back and struggled free and the man ran off. She was taken to school and police were alerted.
The suspect was described as white, medium height and build, with short dark hair and a beard. He was wearing a blue hoody, black t-shirt and beige trousers with black stripes down each leg.
