Melbourne: Teenage girl dragged through Hosier Lane in alleged abduction attempt

An investigation has been launched after a man allegedly attempted to abduct a young girl during a school excursion.

Detectives have been told a 14-year-old girl was walking with classmates while on an excursion to Melbourne’s Hosier Lane when an unknown man approached her at 10.30am on November 15.

The man then allegedly tried to drag her through the landmark before an unknown man pretended to be a teacher and intervened.

The girl was able to break free in the scuffle and she was not physically injured.

Accompanied by a woman, the alleged offender left the area on foot through Flinders Lane and Russell Street.

He is described as having dark-coloured skin and a slim build.

He was wearing black sunglasses, dark-coloured long pants, a dark-coloured hoodie with a red hood, black shoes with white soles, and was carrying a black backpack and black bum bag.

The woman is perceived to be Asian in appearance, with a solid build and long black hair.

She was wearing a purple puffer jacket, beige/light pink t-shirt, blue jeans, white and fluoro orange shoes and a blue backpack.

Police have released photos of the pair as they wish to speak to them.

Anyone who witnessed the incident, or with any other information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000
