Attempted Abduction in Monash

By - 16 February 2010 20

News.com.au is running the following story about an alleged attempted abduction in Monash earlier today;

A 14-YEAR-OLD girl has managed to fend off two men who tried to pull her into their car, Canberra police say.

The teenager was walking along Burnie Street, Monash, in Canberra’s south, on Saturday night when a black ute pulled up near her.

Two men, both believed to be aged in their late teens to early 20s, got out and tried to force her towards the vehicle.

Heaven forbid someone was actually trying to kidnap her!

It does happen, you know, and I bet for at least a few of those times, there were some idiots around squawking about it being a hoax.

It’s not a hoax until it’s been proven a hoax, sorry, but with crimes as serious as these, it has to be that way.

They’ve been hanging around this forum for too long, they’ve become overly cynical

Sorry, somewhat stunned by all this – you pull out a couple of instances where people have faked it therefore all children are? Do you have the samee opinion of reported rape – that women are just after attention?

You have to love the headline;

“Girl, 14, fights of would-be abductors”

What do they teach them in journalism school these days?

At least the victim now knows not to trust anyone in Monash as they are creepy people. Anyone south of Erindale Drive, north of Isabella Drive, west of Ashley Drive & east of Drakeford Drive act quite differently to everyone else & what some of “those” people think is an everyday request, everyone thinks is wrong.

Usually, but not ‘invariably’. It doesn’t happen often, but often enough to be taken seriously.

C’mon Seriously, how many ute driving roving pedophiles are there in Canberra?
How many abductions have there been in the last year/s?
Agree with Oyster that most of these are usually fake:

But hey if it really happened, then cut these guys nuts off and give them a scrote sandwich.

Another case where a kid makes up a story, the media sell it and the public buy it.

These invariably turn out to be the product of a child’s fantasy/fear.

This sounds like a hoax to me. Almost every time a kid reports a so-called abduction attempt interstate the media (in particular The Daily Telegraph) goes ballistic, rails against “perverts” and then – when the kid has successfully attracted the attention he sought – he comes clean and admitted he made the whole thing up. It happens time and time again, you must never believe them, ever. I wouldn’t trust these little bastards as far as I could spit.

wow. I hope you are not, and never will be, a parent.

I think I’d be inclined to give them the benefit of the doubt till proven otherwise.

Do you happen to own a black Ute???

Tend to agree with Noisy. 14 year olds are notorious for attention-seeking, but there’s always the chance it’s true too. More to this story than meets the eye I suspect.
