Man in his 40s held after 'driver tries to pull woman in her 20s into car by hair and follows two others'

A MAN in his 40s is being held by cops after a driver tried to pull a woman into a car by her hair before following two others in Plymouth yesterday.

Cops say a man stopped to speak to a woman in her 20s near a roundabout before trying to drag her into his Mercedes.

She was able to get away and wasn't hurt in the alleged kidnap attempt.

Officers are also probing reports a silver Mercedes was seen later on nearby driving slowly behind two women – who cops want to speak to.

A Devon and Cornwall Police spokesman said: "Detectives would like to trace these two females as a matter of urgency.

"One of them is described as white, tall and thin with long hair.

"The other is described as Asian, shorter, and with dark hair. She was wearing a loose trouser suit.

"Police are still keen to speak to anyone who was in the area of Brest Road at the time and may have relevant dashcam footage."

Cops say a car has been seized, after it was found in Avon and Somerset.

The first reported incident was at a roundabout on Brest Road, at around 1.15pm.

The car was then driven towards William Prance Road, where the second incident is believed to have happened.

A man in his 40s, from London, has been arrested on suspicion of attempted kidnap.

He is still in police custody in Avon and Somerset.

Anyone with information should contact police on 101, quoting CR/058978/19.
