A MAN is said to have tried kidnapping a schoolgirl on her way home by telling her to “get in his car”.
Cops have launched an investigation after the unknown male targeted the girl, 12, on September 7 in Feltham, West London.
The young girl was on her way home from school at around 3.50pm when she noticed a “suspicious man” waiting in his car.
The man is then said to have 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 mum.
Frightened by the man, the girl ran home and later told her mum what had happened.
Believing the man tried to kidnap her daughter, the mum called the cops.
As yet, no arrests have been made but police have appealed for more information.
In another previous incident, just 15 minutes away from where the incident took place on Rosslyn Road, a 15-year-old girl reported a man had tried to convince her to get in his car, two days before the latest incident.
On September 5, she reported a man had attempted to get her into his car on Worton Road, Isleworth.
It is not clear if the two incidents are connected.
Speaking about the Feltham incident, a spokesperson for the Metropolitan Police said: “Police were called at 3.51pm on September 7 to reports of suspicious circumstances in Rosslyn Avenue, Feltham.
“Officers were told 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 have been made. Enquiries continue.”
