A man attempted to abduct a woman who was walking down a street in Northampton.

A woman was listening to music in her headphones while walking down Birchfield Road East, Abington, some time between 2.30pm and 4.30pm on Friday.

A man in a red Volkswagen Polo began honking his horn before pulling over to ask for directions. He then grabbed the victim’s right arm and pulled her towards the vehicle, but she managed to pull away and run off.

The suspect was white, of medium build and aged in his mid-40s with an English accent. He had messy brown hair.
