Chilling CCTV shows moment hooded man creeps up behind girl, 11, and grabs her on way to school

THIS is the terrifying moment a hooded man creeps up behind a girl and grabs her as she walks to school.

The 11-year-old girl can be seen walking unaware that a stranger was coming from behind to grab her bag along the path before the strange man attempts to pull at her bag, following her for several yards before she manages to run off.

Police are now investigating the chilling CCTV footage that was recorded in Munn Road’s junction with Liverton Drive in Manchester on January 10.

Dad-of-two John Southern, 36, said his home CCTV had captured the attack, saying: “It happened outside my door and I have three children. It is a major issue for me, The Sun reported.

In the shocking footage, the young girl can be seen walking along the pavement before a man, covering his face with his jacket hood, starts to follow her.

The man then appears to grab at the young girl, who stops and confronts him.

The young girl then continues to walk, followed by the man, but soon after runs off.

Warnings have previously been issued to parents by schools in the Blackley area of north Manchester after the incident on Acre Top Road.

A similar incident, near Sainsbury’s on Middleton Road by the Heaton Park roundabout, was also reported the day before, according to a letter from Crab Lane Primary School, in Higher Blackley which was sent home to pupils, reports The Sun.

A slim, white man aged in his 30s with blond hair and a blue jacket is described in the warnings.

Crab Lane Primary School headteacher Pat Adams said in a letter home: "The matter was reported to police immediately and the child was able to give a good description, The Sun reported.

"The police have informed us that a similar incident occurred near the Sainsbury’s, by the Heaton Park roundabout, the day before.

"The police suspect that the two incidents are connected, given the short distance between them and the fact that both girls gave a similar description of the man in question.

"Therefore, please take extra precautions to remind your children of ‘stranger danger’ and the importance of being vigilant when on the streets without an adult.”
