Police are looking for a man who abducted a 12-year-old girl on her way to school and dragged her to a secluded area before she managed to fight him off and escape. The girl was on her way to school in the Hunslet area of Leeds on the morning of April 23 when the man approached her then grabbed her before picking her up and carrying her across the road to a secluded spot. He was captured on video as he ran off after the brave girl fought him off and ran away to raise alarm. Detectives today released footage filmed by a woman, showing the man running across a nearby park. The man is described as a "white, medium height and build, with short dark hair and a beard." A West Yorkshire Police spokesman said: "The victim was on her way to school on Old Run Road, Hunslet, at about 9.15am on Tuesday, April 23, when she was approached by a man near the M621 flyover."He grabbed her around the waist and picked her up and carried her across the road towards a secluded wooded area behind an electricity substation."He ran off after the girl fought back and he was also disturbed by a woman passer-by who contacted the police."He was described as white, medium height and build, with short dark hair and a beard. He was wearing a blue hoody, black t-shirt and beige trousers with black stripes down each leg." Detective Inspector James Entwistle, of Leeds District CID, said: "The circumstances of this incident are clearly very disturbing and we urgently need to identify the man shown in these images."The woman who intervened was able to film him on her phone as he ran off across a nearby park off Moor Road and we also have CCTV footage of him in the area which we are releasing."We believe the man is quite identifiable from these images and we would like to hear from anyone who recognises him or who has seen him in the area."The victim and her family have been left shocked and upset by what happened and we are continuing to support them as we progress the investigation."
