Police have launched a public appeal after a ten-year-old girl was abducted and indecently assaulted in Karuah.
The Child Abuse squad is investigating reports a young girl was dragged by the shirt into a car on Boonara Bend about three weeks ago before being abused.
However the girl has managed to break free and run off, escaping across a park and through a laneway onto Carlisle Crescent.
The exact date of the attack remains unclear, but police say it was during an afternoon.
The young girl's family only learnt about the attack this week before reporting it.
Detectives are hoping to speak to a man described as Caucasian, about six foot in his late 20s or early 30s with a scruffy brown undercut haircut who may know more.
He also has a crescent-shaped birthmark on his left cheek just underneath his ear.
The man was wearing a blue t-shirt and jeans at the time of the attack and was in a white station wagon.
Anyone who may know more is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
