25th Sep 18 | News

Gardaí have launched an investigation after a woman in her 40's was approached by a man at a bus stop in Kildare on Wednesday 12th September.

The man offered the woman a lift in his car, a black Toyota Avensis saloon, before getting out and attempting to drag the woman into his vehicle at a bus stop in Barberstown, near Straffan, in Co Kildare.

The man then ran back to the car, without the victim, and drove off. Gardai revealed the suspect was driving a black Toyota Avensis registered between the years 2003 and 2009.

An appeal over the attempted abduction featured on RTÉ's CrimeCall programme on Monday night, leading Gardaí to release a picture of the attempted abductor.

He is believed to be in his mid-to-late thirties, 5'8'' in height and of average build.

Gardai are appealing for any witnesses of the incident or vehicle or anyone with any information to contact Celbridge garda station on 01 628 8222.
