Image released as gardaí investigate attempted abduction of woman in her 40s

GARDAÍ have appealed for information after an alleged attempted abduction of a woman in Co. Kildare recently.

Investigators have also released a composite EvoFit image of a suspect following an appeal on RTÉ’s Crimecall programme on Monday.

The incident happened at around 10pm on Wednesday, September 12 in the Barberstown area near Straffan.

The woman, aged in her 40s, told gardaí she was standing at a bus stop when a man approached her and offered her a lift.

However when she refused, he got out of the car and grabbed her by the arm before attempting to drag her into the vehicle.
