POLICE are appealing for witnesses to the attempted abduction of a girl at Bulli yesterday.
About 5pm on Wednesday an 11-year-old girl was walking along Organs Road when a van stopped in the street.
Police have been told four men exited the black-coloured van and approached the girl with one of them grabbing at her leg.
The girl was able to fight the man off before running into a nearby street and hiding in bushes.
Police were later notified about the matter and conducted patrols of the area but were unable to locate the van or the men.
Wollongong Detectives are now conducting investigations into the matter and are looking for the four men.
One of the men has been described as having a tanned complexion, 30 – 40 years old with a thin build, short curly hair and wearing a white t-shirt and blue denim jeans.
Another man has been described as being of Caucasian appearance, 30 – 40 years old with a muscular build, short blond hair and a tattoo of a skull and arrow on his left forearm.
He was wearing a dark-coloured jacket with the sleeves rolled up and blue denim jeans.
Meanwhile the van has been described as being a black-coloured van with a dent in the front passenger door, dark tinted windows, silver wheels and white and black number plates.
Anyone who witnessed the incident or who has information about the van or the identity of the four men is asked to contact Wollongong Detectives via Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
