Police are continuing their search for a carload of people in connection with the attempted abduction of an 18-year-old woman in Dunedin.

The teenager was walking down Forth Street on Saturday afternoon when she was grabbed by a passenger in the back seat of a parked vehicle, police said.

The driver also tried to pull her in to the car, but she managed to fight her way free.

The vehicle is described as a 90s-type station-wagon with black roof-racks.

Police want anyone who may have seen it to contact them.
