Attempted schoolgirl abductions

REGION - Hills Fleurieu Police are investigating two separate incidents where two teenage schoolgirls were approached by a man driving a car and told to get in the vehicle.

In both incidents the man drove off when the girl threatened to call the police.

The first occurred at about 4pm on Wednesday, November 7 at Mount Compass and the second at about 7.40am on Friday, November 9 at Goolwa.

It is important that police are contacted immediately should an incident occur or should anything suspicious be observed by the public. This will ensure prompt police attention. 

Delays in reporting matters such as these make it difficult for police to conduct investigations.
