Detectives investigating an alleged attempted abduction on Church Hill, South Cave have released an E-Fit of a man they would like to identify and speak to about the incident.

At around 8pm on Wednesday 7 September 2016 a 41-year-old woman was walking her dog when a man grabbed her, before dragging her down nearby chalk path. The woman struck out at the man before running off and reporting the incident to the police.

The victim sustained grazes and has been left very shaken by the incident.

An E-Fit of the suspect has been released and he is described as white, aged around their 60’s with a medium build and had grey hair. He was wearing a blue hooded top and black tracksuit bottoms.

Detective Chief Inspector Simon Gawthorpe said: “This is a really serious incident and we are carrying out numerous enquiries to establish who is responsible, while supporting the victim. I would like to reassure the public that incidents of this nature are rare. However, I would encourage people to be mindful of their personal safety and if they are out alone be vigilant of who is around them and were possible stay to well-lit busy locations.
