Police are appealing for information to trace a man in connection with the attempted abduction of a seven-year-old girl.

The youngster was grabbed by an unknown man in Mary Datchelor Close, Camberwell, south-east London at about 5pm on Thursday October 22, the Metropolitan Police said.

He released her, uninjured, a short time later and made off on foot.

The girl was not injured and the man made off on foot.

If you think you know the identity of the man pictured please contact police immediately. Your call could help identify the man responsible or may eliminate someone from police enquiries.

Anyone who can identify the man or has any further information is asked to contact police on 101 or Tweet @MetCC quoting 5832/22OCT.

To remain 100% anonymous call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 or visit crimestoppers_uk.org.

It comes after Clifford Daley, 33, was charged over the crime last year but later eliminated as a suspect and released.
