Police are appealing for witnesses after a man grabbed a girl's arm in Gloucester.

The 17-year-old victim was walking along Hucclecote Road between 9.30pm and 10.10pm on Friday when she was approached by a taxi close to Insley Gardens.

The driver pulled up onto the pavement and spoke to her before grabbing her arm and pulling her.

She lashed out at the man, who released his hold, before walking away uninjured.

Anyone who witnessed the encounter is urged to call police on 101, quoting incident 488 of February 15.

Information can also be given anonymously on 0800 555 111, or via www.crimestoppers-uk.org. In some cases Crimestoppers offer rewards of up to £1000 where information leads to a conviction.

A 37-year-old Gloucester man has been arrested on suspicion of assault and attempted abduction in connection with the incident and has been bailed to attend Gloucester police station on April 12, pending further inquiries.
