Woman Barely Escapes Kidnap Attempt

A terrified lady barely missed being abducted when she was on her way home soon after a night out on the town by a motorist who tried to drag her into his car.

Following the attempted kidnapping in Llanelli, Carmarthenshire, on January 20th, around 11:45 pm, police are attempting to locate the driver.

According to reports, as the woman walked down Tan Y Graig Road, leaving the British Royal Legion bar, she was accosted by a male in a reddish-brown-colored automobile.

Upon her refusal to get into his car, he got out and attempted to force her into it.

The suspect in question was said to have a foreign accent and black hair. Social media users suspected the male was an illegal migrant.

Because of the planned lodging of illegal migrant asylum seekers at the Stradey Park Hotel, the influx in Llanelli, Carmarthenshire, has recently been a matter of concern. But as neighborhood and city council members voiced their disapproval, the idea of using the hotel for that purpose was scrapped.

In Llanelli, Carmarthenshire, the crime rate varies from one region to another. In 2022, there were 82 offenses per 1,000 persons in Llanelli Rural. In the span of a single month, 432 crimes were perpetrated on certain streets. Sexual offenses and acts of violence account for the vast majority of criminal cases.

The woman managed to flee to a neighboring residence. She escaped unharmed but naturally remains traumatized by the experience, according to a police representative. The police have gone door-to-door and used surveillance footage extensively.   The woman’s name and description have remained undisclosed after the attempted abduction.

Authorities are asking the public for assistance in identifying the vehicle and its driver.  Police are urging the public to look for the car on surveillance cameras, doorbell recordings, or dashcam footage.

Dyfed-Powys Police are asking anybody with information that might aid their investigation to contact them directly via social media messaging.
