Woman Dragged Into Alleyway

(BBC) – A 23-YEAR-OLD WOMAN has been dragged into an alleyway in Essex.

She was accosted on Tuesday, around 7.00pm, by a man in Thisselt Road, Canvey Island, who approached her from behind before dragging her into the alley.

The woman screamed, forcing her attacker to run off towards Waarden Road. Officers recovered a pink glove at the scene. The woman was uninjured.

Det Insp Ian Collins said: “We’re obviously concerned as to the motive of this attack.”

He added: “It was only thwarted by the woman’s brave actions.

“We need to identify this man quickly and I’m hoping the pink glove may jog someone’s memory which in turn will lead them to identifying him for us.”

The assailant is described as white, in his late teens or early 20s, about 5ft 9in tall and was wearing a dark hoodie.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call Essex Police on 0300 3334444 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
