NZ NewswireNZ Newswire 6/07/2016

Police are on the hunt for a man who tried to pull an eight-year-old girl into his car in Wellington.

The man drove up next to the child on Awarua Street in Ngaio on Monday afternoon and tried to pull her in through the passenger door of his black car, police say.

The girl managed to wriggle free, but the man, described as an old-looking Caucasian with a long white beard, chased her towards Awarua Train Station on foot before giving up and going back to his vehicle.

Police are appealing for any sightings of the man.
