A man tried to get a teenage girl in to a car in Coventry.
The 16-year-old was walking along Longfellow Road, in Stoke, on the evening of Friday, March 15, when a car pulled alongside her and the driver began shouting at her.
He told her to get in to the car, but the teenager ran home and police were called.
The girl is said to be “distressed” by what happened.
A spokesman for West Midlands Police said: “Police were contacted on Friday evening, March 15, by the mum of a teenage girl in Coventry who reported a man shouting at her to get into his car.
“The 16-year-old was walking in Longfellow Road, in the Stoke area of the city, at around 6pm when the driver pulled up alongside her.
“She ran off and raised the alarm at home. She was not hurt – though understandably distressed by the incident – and no attempt was made to physically grab the girl.
“A description of the driver and car has been passed to neighbourhood police officers for them to be aware and officers are planning to meet with the girl and her mum.”
CoventryLive has asked West Midlands Police for the description of the driver and car involved.
