Police in Hartlepool are appealing for anyone with information, dashcam or CCTV following an incident yesterday (around 1.40pm - 1.45pm on Thursday 12th October).
It happened directly opposite the entrance to the parade of shops at Middle Warren Local Centre on Mulberry Rise when a teenage girl was walking towards the Strawberry apartments.
A man opened the front passenger door of a van which was driving towards the roundabout with Merlin Way and Hart Road and took hold of the 16-year old’s arm before she ran to safety.
Officers are treating this as an isolated incident and the girl was physically unharmed.
The man from the van is described as white, in his 40s, with dark hair and beard and dressed in black clothing. The van was white with a yellow stripe on it.
Anyone who can provide information or footage to help ongoing enquiries is asked to contact Hartlepool CID via the 101 number. Please quote ref 203671.
If you don't want to speak to police you can pass information anonymously to independent charity Crimestoppers online at www.crimestoppers-uk.org or by phoning 0800 555 111.
