Attempted abduction of 11-year-old in Amersham

Thames Valley Police are appealing for witnesses after receiving a report of an attempted abduction of a girl in Amersham.

The girl, aged 11, was approached by a man in Briery Way at around 3.15pm on 11th June.

It was reported that the man approached the girl in an alley way and asked her to get into his car.

The offender is described as white, bald, in his forties, with distinctive facial tattoos and piercings.

One tattoo is described as a leaf shape on his forehead and pattern down side of face toward neck.

He had a London accent.

Officers are looking to speak with the woman that intervened.

She was aged between 20 and 30-years-old and had red curly, medium length hair.

She was wearing a red dress with flowers on it and a purple cardigan.

Investigating officer PC Sam Summers based at Force CID at Aylesbury said:

"I am appealing for the woman who came to the girl's assistance to make contact with police on 101.

"I am also asking for anyone who believes they recognise the description of the man to make contact with us.

"Although this is a concerning incident, I believe it to be completely isolated, and no other reports have been received.

"The victim was not harmed during the incident, and I am hoping that given the description, somebody will know who this suspect is.

"You may also notice be additional patrols in the area over the coming days while we investigate this incident, and we will be liaising with local schools in the area."

If you have any information relating to this case, call 101 quoting reference number "43180183267."
