Police seek two suspects after Lambeth child abduction attempts

Police have appealed for information about two suspects involved in attempting to abduct two young girls.

The first incident was on Tuesday between 7.50am and 8am near the Crown and Sceptre pub in Streatham Hill.

The 11-year-old victim left the area following the abduction attempt by boarding a bus.

The suspect is white, 5ft 10ins tall, medium build and short blond hair.

He wore a black bomber-style jacket, blue jeans, and black lace up leather shoes.

The second incident was on Wednesday at around 8am near the entrance of Archbishop Park in Lambeth Road.

The suspect took hold of the 13-year-old’s hand and began to drag her towards the park.

A passing dog walker shouted at the suspect and the victim was able to escape his grasp and run home.

This suspect is white, 35 to 40 years old, wearing black thick frame square glasses, a black baseball cap, black jacket and trousers.

Detective Inspector Ian Kenward, from Lambeth CID, said: “These are two very worrying incidents and we appeal to anyone who was in or around the areas at the time they occurred to contact police.”

Police are keeping an open mind whether the two incidents are linked.
