WARNING: Parents on high alert after gang 'abducts girl and bundles her into black taxi'

Police are investigating after the child said she was abducted as she was on her way home from school in Stourbridge.

The 12-year-old told detectives she was in Teasdale Way, Wollescote around 3.15pm when she was forced into a black taxi by four white men.

She reported being driven round for approximately 90 minutes before the car stopped in Clent and the girl was able to get out and run away. A member of the public found her and helped to call police.

Parents in the area have been warned to be “extra vigilant” in the coming days and to make sure their children do not walk alone on their way to and from school. 

A letter sent to parents at the nearby Earls High School said the girl is “well but extremely distressed” following the incident at around 3.15pm on Thursday May 18. 

The Earls High School warned parents one of the suspects is a white man “with a foreign accent”. 

Concerned staff said pupils would be allowed to use their phones to check with parents and guardians how they would get home in the wake of the alleged abduction. 

The letter said: “We have been made aware today of a serious incident involving the abduction of a Year 7 girl from a local Dudley secondary school. 

“The girl is safe and well but extremely distressed. The abduction involved a white male with a foreign accent who pushed a girl into a black taxi with two other white men. 

“The taxi was then driven to Clent where the girl managed to escape from the men.

“Please can you be extra vigilant in the coming days and ensure that your child is not commuting alone to and from school.”

In a letter on its website, Brierley Hill school Thorns Community College said the abducted girl was walking home from Pedmore Technology College.

Dudley Police said the 12-year-old girl is being interviewed with officers conducting extensive CCTV enquiries. 

The police force said in a statement: “The young girl is assisting us with this investigation and, although upset, she has not been physically hurt.

“We have had no reports of anything similar in the area and this would appear to be an isolated incident.

“We understand the concern and fear that such incidents raise in the community and we would urge anyone with information to contact us on 101.”
