POLICE are hunting for a man and woman who tried to abduct three children in Colyton on Monday night.
A boy, 9, and his sisters, aged 12 and 11 were riding scooters along Carpenter Street near their home at around 8pm when a white Subaru Forrester drew near.
A man and a woman yelled out to them but continued driving.
The siblings continued riding their scooters; the car returned and stopped near them when they were on Cooinda Street .
The woman in the front passenger seat got out of the car and attempted to grab the girls.
They screamed and the couple fled in the vehicle.
A canvass of the surrounding area for potential witnesses by police was unsuccessful.
The woman is described as aged in her 40s and with orange shoulder-length hair.
The man had short hair, a slight beard and was wearing a black shirt.
The incident has prompted police to again encourage parents to discuss the Safe People, Safe Places messages with their children, including:
■Make sure your parents or another adult you know knows where you are at all times.
■Always walk straight home or to the place you are walking to.
■Know where safe places are – a shop, service station, police station, library or school. If you are ever frightened, you should go to one of these places and ask them to call the police.
■Learn about safe adults you can look for and talk to if you need help – police officers, teachers at school, adults you know and trust.
■Don’t talk to people you don’t know and never get into a car with someone you don’t know. If a car stops on the side of the road and you don’t know the person inside, do not stop.
■If you are scared and can use a phone, call 000 and tell the operator you are scared.
