Police are investigating the attempted abduction of a girl in Hamilton.
They say a man driving a utility pulled alongside the girl on Aberdeen Drive just before 3.30pm yesterday and tried to entice her into his vehicle.
Police said the girl started to cry and a woman came to her assistance.
The man then left in what is described as a ute with a blue cab and red sides on its tray.
Police want to speak to the woman who intervened and also from anyone who can help identify the offender or his vehicle.
