A mother says her daughter's been left traumatised after being violently attacked by a man in Chorley.
The 11-year-old girl was grabbed by the throat, punched in the face and had her school bag stolen while out with a friend yesterday evening.
Lisa Walsh believes the man was trying to abduct her daughter, and says her friend saved her life by managing to fight the man off.
Lancashire Police have increased patrols in the area and are warning people to be vigilant.
