ACT Policing is seeking witnesses following CCTV obtained by police that indicates an attempted abduction in Red Hill on Monday (10 October).

About 6.45pm, two females were walking in Esperance Street, Red Hill when a silver VT/VY Commodore approached them.

The male tried multiple times to force the female inside the vehicle, however she managed to get out of the vehicle and leave with the second female.

The VT/VY silver Commodore is reported to have damage to both the driver’s side and rear right door.
