Police net tightens on Forrestfield predator

Police have new leads in the hunt for child predator who attempted a brazen abduction in Forrestfield by pretending to be a postman.

The terrifying ordeal happened on Wednesday morning at a home on Anderson Street.

A man knocked on the front door, pretending to deliver a letter before pushing past the 67-year-old grandmother and trying to lure children from inside the home to leave with him.

Detectives returned to the scene on Friday, door knocking neighbouring homes.

After more than two days on the run, Midland detectives are now interviewing a number of people as they close in on the man.

VideoThe father of two young girls targeted in an attempted abduction in Perth’s east has revealed frightening new details of the ordeal.

According to the father of two of the girls, who did not want to be named, the predator was wearing a black full face motorcycle helmet when he lined the children up against a wall and grabbed the eight-year-old girl’s hand, telling her: “Come with me, I won’t hurt you”.

Two other children in the house at the time were a seven-year-old girl and a four-year-old boy.

The grandmother fought back, screaming and begging the man “don’t take her, take me, take me” before the man decided to leave.

He returned to the house seconds later to pick up the letter he had dropped, before fleeing in a grey car, thought to be a Honda CRV or a similar vehicle, with an obscured numberplate.

Police are still struggling to find a motive for the near abduction, labelling the crime as “concerning”.

The man is described as having a stocky build, olive skin and short black hair.

Anyone with information is urged to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or report it online at www.crimestopperswa.com.au
