Police are appealing for public assistance following an attempted abduction in Shepparton last month.
Investigators have been told a 21-year-old woman was walking on Corio Street with her four-year-old son around 5.10pm on 21 January when her attention was called by a man seated in a parked car.
When the woman approached the car, the man offered her a lift home.
Despite repeated refusals, the man continued to demand that he be allowed to drive the woman home.
He then grabbed her by the arm and attempted to drag her into the car.
When the woman threatened to call the police, the man drove off towards the Shepparton CBD.
Police are investigating the incident and are appealing for witnesses to come forward and assist them with their investigation.
The man police wish to speak to is described as being aged around 50, with a slim build, olive complexion, black hair worn combed back and wrinkles.
He was wearing a short sleeved cream coloured button up shirt and a silver watch on his right wrist and is believed to have spoken with an accent.
He was driving a white Ford falcon at the time of the incident.
Anyone with any information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or www.crimestoppers.com.au
