Police Appeal For Public Assistance Following Abduction Attempt – St Clair
Police from the St. Marys Local Area Command are appealing for public assistance following an attempted abduction involving an eight-year-old boy in St Clair yesterday.
About 6.30pm on Sunday (13 December 2009), the boy was standing at the intersection of Hunter Street and Melville Road when he saw a vehicle travelling slowly towards him.
The vehicle has been described as a small white hatchback with no hubcaps and yellow and black number plates.
The vehicle stopped near the young boy and the driver, covered only in a fluffy blanket, asked the boy to get into the car.
Police believe the man attempted to entice the boy by telling him he would give him lollies.
The boy refused to get in and ran from the man, telling his parents upon his arrival home.
Police were immediately contacted and an investigation is underway.
Police are appealing for anyone who may have information about this incident to contact St. Marys Police via Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
