Police in Salford ask motorists for help in identifying a man who attempted to kidnap a local schoolgirl

Man left with broken jaw in unprovoked attack in Leigh nightclub toilets – did you see anything?

Officers in Salford are appealing to drivers who were in the Monton area of Salford on Monday 21 November 2022, at approximately 6:15pm, to come forward and help with their enquiries.

Greater Manchester Police responded to reports by the parents of a teenage girl on Monday 21 November 2022, who had been approached by a male at a bus stop between the two roundabouts on Monton Green, Monton.

It is believed that he made advances to the 15-year-old and tried to physically get her to go with him to his car, a dark hatchback.

GMP have had sight of CCTV footage, which has led to them to possibly linking this event to two more, which took place in other areas of Salford.

Operation Wraith has been set up with dedicated Detectives investigating the offences.

Detectives are now keen to speak to anyone who may have dashcam footage pertaining to the following locations:

  • Rocky Lane/Monton Green/Monton High Street on Monday 21 November 2022 between 6-7pm.
  • Mossfield Road/Ackworth Road, Swinton on Monday 21 November 2022 between 8-9am.
  • Liverpool Street (Salford), between Fitzwarren Street and Albion Way on Wednesday 16 November 2022 between 7:45-8:20pm.

Officers are requesting that you email cctvretrieval@gmp.police.uk with your name and contact number and will email you back with instructions to upload your footage.

Detective Inspector Chris Horsfield from the Salford Division said: “The victims have been left extremely shaken up by this encounter and it’s very important that we get this man identified and off the streets as soon as possible.

“We believe that the man we want to speak to may have been driving a dark-coloured hatchback car, but we need to review dashcam footage to identify the make, model and registration plate.

“We are appealing to drivers in the areas on the dates and times above to please submit their dashcam footage to us, so our specialised officers can go through and analyse it.

“You can contact us on 0161 856 8361 (voicemail facility), by dialling 101 or using the LiveChat function on our website www.gmp.police.uk, quoting log number 2786 of 21/11/22.”
