Police release e-fit image of kidnap suspect

Barnet police have released a photo-fit image in relation to an attempted abduction in Golders Green.

The botched kidnap occurred at 6:20pm on May 25 this year on Hampstead Way.

A lone female jogger heading towards the Heath was grabbed by both arms by the suspect in the image.

He then tried to drag her into some nearby undergrowth, but she managed to break free by kicking out and screaming for help.

The man is described as white, approximately 6 foot 1 inch tall, of proportionate build, with brown hair.

He was wearing thin rimmed glasses and a waist length brown cotton jacket with a hood, dark basketball shorts and black Nike trainers with a yellow tick.

Det Supt Xavier Banaghan, from Barnet’s Crime Investigation Unit, said: “We hope that a member of the public can help us identify this man as soon as possible. His actions indicate he may be a dangerous individual, and we need to find him before his actions can escalate in any way.”
