Attempted abduction of 13-year-old girl in Queensferry

Police in North Wales have launched an investigation after the attempted abduction of a 13-year-old girl in Queensferry.

The teenager had been walking along Aston Road near to Asda Supermarket yesterday evening when she was assaulted by a man.

The girl managed to raise the alarm and the man made off on foot in the direction of Queensferry.

The suspect is described as a white male, around 50 years old, wearing a long black coat and with short dark hair. Based on his accent he is believed to be of Eastern European origin.

The victim was in shock but not seriously hurt, and is being supported by her family and detective officers.

An investigation is on-going and detectives and local officers are engaged in enquiries to identify this man.

I would like to appeal for anyone who was in the vicinity of Asda yesterday evening at or around this time who may have seen anything that could help us to please contact North Wales Police on 101.

I would also like to reassure the local community that this is a very rare incident and North Wales Police are doing everything we can to identify and apprehend this man.
