The two men blocked the girl’s path with the car and tried to drag her into the vehicle, but a cyclist saw what was happening and intervened.

DC Lesley Sonnen said: “We are keen to speak to anyone who was in the area at the time and might have seen these men or the vehicle, particularly the cyclist that intervened.”
