E-Fit Appeal to trace man who acted suspiciously towards a girl in Sefton


Detectives have released an e-fit of a man they want to trace who acted suspiciously towards a girl in Litherland.

At around 8.30 pm on Saturday, 10 January 2015 a teenage girl was walking along Moss Lane in Litherland, when a car drove past her a couple of times.

It then pulled alongside her and the driver wound down his window and told her to get into the car. She ignored him and carried on walking. The driver then got out of the car, at which point she ran off to her grandmother’s house nearby.

Detective Constable Anita Grady said: “We are really keen to trace this man and I would urge anyone to take a good look at the e-fit and contact me if you think you recognise this man.”

“I would also like to reassure the community that this type of incident is very rare and like to praise the young girl for her quick thinking. She did exactly the right thing by not engaging with the man and running to a place of safety.”

The man has been described as white, of skinny build and about 30-years-old. He has a square face and a full head of dark hair, which is spikey. He also has facial hair, slightly longer than a stubble and was wearing a dark coloured tracksuit.

The vehicle he was driving is described as old saloon style with a boot and dark in colour, very similar in appearance to a Rover.

If anyone does encounter a similar situation, then they should not speak to, or engage with the individual and go as quickly to a place of safety such as a shop, public house, local business and call the police straight away.

Anyone who has any information is asked to call police on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously on 0800 555 111.
