By 18 June 2014 6

ACT Policing is seeking witnesses following the report of an attempted abduction of a 13-year-old girl in Conder this morning (Wednesday, 18 June).

About 8.45am, the teenage girl was walking to school when a man got out of his van, which was parked in Cremorne Place, and followed her.

The man grabbed the girl by the wrist from behind. The girl was able to break free and flee away from the man. The man did not speak during the attempted abduction.

The male is described as being Middle Eastern/Mediterranean in appearance, aged in his mid-30s, approximately 6” (183cm) tall, with a stocky build and short, dark brown hair. The man was wearing black cargo pants, with a ‘fluoro’ jacket and dark coloured ‘workmen’ boots.

The van is described as being possibly a VW make, white in colour with a small logo only on the driver’s side door. . The van has no rear windows except for a tinted window at the passenger side rear door. There is a metal step across the back of the van.

Police are urging anyone who may have witnessed the incident or have any information that could assist police to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via www.act.crimestoppers.com.au. Information can be provided anonymously.

From the photos in the CT, one of the sign installers of the district will know exactly who this joker is.

Does appear a professional bit of signwork.

Apparently, there have been reports by people that this has been an ongoing issue of people being followed walking home or whatever by strangers. It nerves me what these types of people are trying to achieve and should be caught. I however know nothing about this particular incident but I am concerned for if the girl is ok and can hopefully remember more/gain more information to help police

The world is becoming a place of crime.
We need to do something

You have the statistics that it is worse than ten/twenty/fifty years ago, or is this speculation?

The world has always been a place of crime. And we have been, and are doing plenty. Canberra is in pretty good hands.
