Appeal for information after attempted abduction of teenage girl in Queensferry

At approximately 5.40pm yesterday evening (Friday 15th December), a 13 year old girl was walking along Aston Road, Queensferry, near to Asda Supermarket, when she was assaulted by a man.

The girl managed to raise the alarm and the male made off on foot in the direction of Queensferry.

The suspect is described as a white male, around 50 years old, wearing a long black coat and with short dark hair.  From his accent he is believed to be of Eastern European origin.

The 13 year old victim was in shock but not seriously hurt, and is being supported by her family and detective officers.

DCI Dan Tipton from North Wales Police said: 'An investigation is on-going and detectives and local officers are engaged in enquiries to identify this man.

“I would like to appeal for anyone who was in the vicinity of Asda yesterday evening at or around this time who may have seen anything that could help us to please contact North Wales Police on 101.

“I would also like to reassure the local community that this is a very rare incident and North Wales Police are doing everything we can to identify and apprehend this man.'
