A disgusting creep tried to kidnap a little girl as she walked to primary school last week.

The 11-year-old girl was on her way to school on Friday morning in Lucan, west Dublin when she was approached by a man in his 40s at around 8:40am.

He drove up slowly beside her and demanded that she get into his black-coloured car, Dublin Live reports.

The man told the youngster to “jump in out of the cold” and that he would drop her to the school.

Thankfully the little girl managed to escape the attempted kidnap and ran in the direction of her aunt’s house.

A spokesman for Gardai told Dublin Live: “Gardaí in Lucan responded to reports of a suspicious approach to a young female, yesterday 17 January, near Griffeen Road. No offences disclosed.”
