Police are hoping to hear from a cyclist who stopped an attempted abduction in Cambridge.

Officers are appealing for witnesses following an attempted abduction in Cambridge at about 3.10pm last Thursday (June 28).

A 17-year-old girl was cycling along Arbury Road when she was approached by two men in a silver car.

Police say the two men blocked the girl’s path with the car and tried to drag her into the vehicle but a cyclist saw what was happening and intervened.

DC Lesley Sonnen said: “We are keen to speak to anyone who was in the area at the time and might have seen these men or the vehicle, particularly the cyclist that intervened.”

Anyone with information is asked to call 101 quoting reference 35/9988/18 or report online at www.cambs.police.uk/report.
