A 10-year-old girl managed to fight off two men who tried to grab her on her way from school yesterday.
The girl was walking near Ashcroft Public School in Sydney’s south-west, when a van pulled up next two her.
She told police that the man in the passenger seat spoke to her, before both men got out of the car, grabbed her around the mouth and on the arm.
The girl managed to fight off the men by biting and kicking them to make them release their grip.
She then ran to a nearby friends house before running home, at which point the van continued to follow her, parking outside her house.
The incident was reported on Sunrise this morning:
The girl guessed the first man to be in his late 30s or early 40s and described him as Caucasian in appearance, about 180-185cm tall, bald, clean shaven, with blue eyes and of a large build.
He was wearing a red t-shirt and black shorts, and has the letter ‘C’ tattooed on the back of his neck.
She said the second man was darker and thinner, about 30-years-old and 170cm tall.
He had short curly black hair, brown eyes and was wearing a long-sleeved red and blue-coloured striped shirt and dark-blue tracksuit pants.
He also had a tattoo with the letters ‘COT’ outlined in red ink running down one arm.
