A MAN is said to have tried to kidnap a schoolgirl on his way home by telling her to “get in his car”.
Police have launched an investigation after the unidentified man assaulted the 12-year-old girl in Feltham on September 7. West London.
The young girl was on her way home from school at around 3:50 p.m. when she saw a “suspicious man” waiting in his car.
The man then allegedly asked her to “come here” through the open window of his car.
When she ignored him, he repeated the question, according to the girl’s mother.
Scared of the man, the girl ran home and later told her mother what had happened.
Believing that the man was trying… kidnap her daughter, the mother called the police.
No arrests have been made yet, but Police have requested more information.
In another previous incident, just 15 minutes from where the incident took place on Rosslyn Road, a 15-year-old girl reported that a man had tried to convince her to get into his car two days before the latest incident.
On September 5, she reported that a man had tried to get her into his car on Worton Road, Isleworth.
It is not clear whether the two incidents are related.
A spokesman for the Metropolitan Police said of the Feltham incident: “Police were called to reports of suspicious circumstances on 7 September at 3:51 PM on Rosslyn Avenue, Feltham.
“Officers were told that a man in a stationary car asked a 12-year-old girl to ‘come here’.
“The victim ignored him and walked home.
“The police were then called. No arrests were made. The investigation continues.”
