Have your say

The mother of a nine year-old girl said she has been left distressed and in shock after a man attempted to grab her daughter and pull her into a car in broad daylight just minutes from her school in Co Down.

The man grasped the P5 pupil by her schoolbag as she walked to meet her mother in Dromore just before 2pm on Tuesday afternoon. In a matter of seconds, just as she heard voices nearby, the man let go of the young girl and she ran to the nearby St Vincent de Paul charity shop in Mount Street.

Both Dromore Central PS and St Colman’s PS sent letters to parents yesterday informing them of the incident and warning them to be vigilant, and it is understood other schools in the area contacted parents too.
