Parents have been put on high alert after a 12-year-old girl was allegedly abducted by a gang of four men and forced into a black taxi. Police are investigating after the child said she was abducted as she was on her way home from school in Stourbridge, West Midlands.
The 12-year-old told detectives she was in Teasdale Way, Wollescote around 3.15pm when she was forced into a black taxi by four white men. She reported being driven round for approximately 90 minutes before the car stopped in Clent and the girl was able to get out and run away. A member of the public found her and helped to call police.
Parents in the area have been warned to be “extra vigilant” in the coming days and to make sure their children do not walk alone on their way to and from school. A letter sent to parents at the nearby Earls High School said the girl is “well but extremely distressed” following the incident at around 3.15pm on Thursday May 18. The Earls High School warned parents one of the suspects is a white man “with a foreign accent”.
