A teenage girl has been left "extremely scared" after a man tried to grab her as she walked through a subway.
The victim, a 15-year-old Poole girl, was approached by an unknown man who grabbed her arm and tried to pull her away from the location.
Luckily she was able to shrug him off and run away. She was not injured. It happened 3.30pm and 4.10pm on Friday February 8.
Detective Constable James Batty, of Poole CID, said: “This has been very upsetting for the young victim, and she has been left extremely scared. The motives of the offender are not known at this time.
“He is described as a white man aged between 20 and 40, around five feet five inches tall with light brown coloured stubble, and wearing a hooded top.
“I would ask witnesses and anyone with information about the incident to come forward as they might be able to assist with the investigation.”
