Girl Breaks Free From Abductor

POLICE patrols have increased in Brisbane's western suburbs after a man tried to abduct a seven-year-old girl at Toowong on Monday.
West Brisbane District's Detective Inspector Tony Cross said yesterday that extra crews had been deployed soon after the 6.30pm attack.
He said the girl had been playing alone on a footpath outside her home, near Toowong State Primary School, when the man approached and offered her sweets. Insp Cross said the girl rejected the offer but as she turned to walk back inside, the man grabbed her by both arms.
She broke free, ran into the house and her parents alerted the police. Insp Cross said the girl wasn't injured but had been mentally scarred.
"She is to be commended for not accepting the lollies from the offender," he said.
"She hasn't been injured but she does have some superficial scratches and no doubt she is traumatised by the event."
Insp Cross said police were treating the matter very seriously amid concerns about copycat offenders.
"We've door-knocked the entire area - the immediate area and surrounds - and we've conducted checks with retailers for the sale of confectionary," he said. "We've also taken away clothing for scientific examination and we've spoken at length with the Indooroopilly Juvenile Aid Bureau.
"Officers have also spoken at length with the girl."
Insp Cross said the man, who left the scene by unknown means, was described as Caucasian, aged in his 20s, about 180cm tall with a medium build, chocolate-brown hair and a well-kept beard with no moustache.
He also had a skull and crossbones tattoo on the back of his left hand, and was wearing a long-sleeved black shirt or coat, black jeans and black shoes with red stitching.
Insp Cross said anyone with information should contact Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000.
