Teenage girls were left “shaken and upset” after what is believed to have been an attempted abduction in Spalding.

Four girls aged between 12 and 14 were approached by a man in a car in Pennygate in Spalding on Sunday at 9.30am.

The man shouted to the girls and drove close to them as they walked along a street.

He then waited for the group at the end of a corner in his car, at which point the girls ran off.

Jo Dawson, mother of one of the girls involved, said: “I was furious – obviously it really wasn’t a very nice situation for the girls to be in and they were quite shaken and upset by it.

“The man wanted them to get in the car and shouted suggestive things at them, too.”

A spokeman for Lincolnshire Police said: “Following the inappropriate and suspicious nature of the man’s behaviour we are now attempting to trace the car and the owner or driver of that vehicle.

“We are currently in liaison with Cambridgeshire Police as the car was from Cambridgeshire.

“We are warning people to be aware this has happened and ask anyone who was in the vicinity at the time of the incident, who may have seen or heard anything, to call us on 101, quoting incident 209.”
