A 15-YEAR-OLD girl escaped abduction after struggling free from her attacker as he tried to drag her into a car.

Police want to talk to a man with 'twisted, wonky teeth' in connection with the incident which happened on December 28 at around 5.15pm.

The teen was standing at a bus stop in Charterhouse Road, Orpington, opposite Malvern Road when a silver BMW, believed to be a 3-series, drove passed her, heading in the direction of Sevenoaks Road.

The car slowed down and then carried on. About two minutes later the car reappeared, driving in the opposite direction towards Court Road. This time it stopped and the driver got out and attempted to drag the girl into the front passenger seat but she struggled free and ran off. He returned to his car, turned it around and headed off back towards Sevenoaks Road.

The man was white, aged about 35, about 6ft tall, of stocky build, with short mousey coloured curly hair and bushy eyebrows.

His teeth were twisted, and the girl described them as "wonky overlapping" yellow teeth, especially on his upper jaw.

He smelt of body odour and cigarettes and was wearing a black waterproof waist length jacket, a blue round neck T-Shirt, dark blue jeans and a light brown scarf. He spoke with a local accent. The car had a black leather interior. Anyone with any information should contact Detective Constable Emma Jiggins at Bromley Police's CID on 020 8284 8754 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
