Car pair preyed on girl, aged six

A HUNT is under way for men who tried to lure a six-year-old girl into their car in Mirfield on Monday night.

The incident happened on Southway at around 9.30pm and involved two men in a silver Vauxhall Astra.

They had already asked a 16-year-old girl, who refused advances made by a passenger in the car, when an attempt was made on the child. She was on the other side of the road from the older girl and did not approach the car. The passenger is described as white and bald.

Insp Jenny Thompson, of Kirklees Police’s Dewsbury and Mirfield NPT, said house-to-house enquiries are being made.

She said: “This is an isolated incident. Enquiries are on-going and we have been speaking with both children’s parents.

“We would like to speak with anyone who saw a car fitting this description, which is believed to be a new shape silver Astra.”

Anyone with information should call police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
