Police have launched a manhunt after a sicko tried to abduct two schoolgirls in southeast London.

The man reportedly approached the pair at a bus stop on Crofton Road in Orpington, near Bromley, at around 3pm on September 9.

He left his car before attempting to grab the terrified pair.

The two girls fled and went back to their school where police and their parents were informed.

Both girls were reportedly distressed but physically unharmed.

The suspect, described as a white man in his 30s, is thought to have been with another white man in his 30s in a white car, potentially an L plate Fiat 500.

Police are appealing for information about the incident, which is being treated as an abduction attempt.
