THE hunt is on for a man who attempted to grab a girl as she walked to school.

Police have appealed for information after a man approached the girl from behind and grabbed her wrist as she walked along Lon Ogwen to Ysgol Tryfan at 8.30am today (Friday, July 18).

A North Wales Police spokeswoman said: “She managed to break free and ran home to where she raised the alarm.”

The man is described as being white, aged around 50, scruffy-looking with thick grey/white facial stubble.

He was wearing a black thigh length jacket, a black hood pulled up and dark green jeans.

He was said to smell of alcohol and had a local accent.
