Mum horrified after man told daughter to get into his car

Police are investigating

The mother of a teenage girl claimed a man followed her daughter before threatening to drag her into his car in North Hykeham.

The 32-year-old mother of three, who wished to remain anonymous, told The Lincolnite that her 14-year-old daughter was approached by a male in a black Audi estate in North Hykeham at around 6.30pm on Monday, July 1.

She said: “He was on the other side of the road talking to her through the car window. She thought at first he was going to ask for directions. He asked her to get in the car. She said no and she started to walk away speedily.

“He threatened to get her into the car and followed her until she got to her aunty’s flat and then he sped off. She was very scared up until she knew she was safe.

“She’s now in flight mode and hasn’t really expressed her feelings and has bottled it up. She now wants to be taken to school rather than walking so it has affected her. She’ll go to school on the bus from now on.”

A spokesperson for Lincolnshire Police said: “We are investigating an incident on Monday July 1, around 6:30pm when a driver of a black Audi spoke to a teenage girl as she walked along Dore Avenue/Hutson Drive, North Hykeham.

“We are appealing for the driver of the black Audi, any witnesses and anyone in the area who has information to contact us.”

Anyone with information should contact police on 101 or via email at [email protected] quoting incident 386 of July 1.

It can also be reported through the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 or online here.
