Appeal after Lancaster clubber pulled into car

Local police are appealing for information after a young woman was pulled into a car outside a Lancaster nightclub.

The 20-year-old woman, who was wearing a black top and white shorts, left Elements nightclub at around 3.30am on Monday 30th August when a small white car pulled up alongside her. The front seat passenger got out of the vehicle and grabbed her from behind, before pulling her into the car, driven by another man, with another man sitting in the back.

Luckily, the woman was able to struggle free and jumped out of the car at the traffic lights on Dalton Square. The victim fell, grazing her knee, before making her way to the Borough pub, where she told a man outside what had happened.

All of the men in the car were described as being white and in their early to mid twenties. One had short dark brown or ginger hair with a dark tracksuit top; another had short dark brown hair that was longer on top and was wearing a bright blue top and the third was a slightly larger build with short brown hair and was wearing navy track suit bottoms.

Police are now reviewing CCTV from the town centre, which they hope may have captured the incident or further details of the vehicle involved.

"There were potentially a number of people in the area who may have witnessed what has happened," notes Detective Glen Oldham, "especially the man that the victim spoke to outside the Borough pub.

"We would like to speak to anyone who has information."
