Whitsunday Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

AN 18-YEAR-OLD girl was walk­ing home on Her­bert Street in Proser­pine on Tues­day night when she was ap­proached by a man driv­ing a white dual cab with a black bull bar at 7.30pm.

Whit­sun­day Crime In­ves­ti­ga­tion Branch (CIB) Lynette Corne said the man yelled out to the 18-year-old and she asked for him to go away.

Ms Corne said the man then got out of the dual cab and at­tempted to abduct her but she man­aged to es­cape.

“Due to the se­ri­ous na­ture of this crime we are ask­ing for any­one in the com­mu­nity who may have in­for­ma­tion to come for­ward,” De­tec­tive Corne said.

The man was de­scribed as cau­casian with fair skin, stand­ing at ap­prox­i­mately 175cm tall and wear­ing a black hoodie with a wide brimmed fish­ing hat and blue board shorts.

He was also de­scribed as hav­ing a “rough Aus­tralian ac­cent” and “dirty teeth”.

If any­one has in­for­ma­tion, they should con­tact Whit­sun­day CIB on 4948 8847.
