Two Men Try To Lure Teenage Girl Into Car In Padgate

A teenage girl had a frightening ordeal in Padgate yesterday after two men tried to lure her into their car.

The black vehicle pulled up alongside the 17-year-old as she was walking home from work along Padgate Lane shortly after 5.30pm.

One of the men inside the car, which stopped near to Padgate Tennis and Bowling Club, then wound down his window and told the girl to get in.

She punched him in the face, and the pair drove off in the direction of Padgate Station.
