FIGHTING FOR LIFE

“A number of people were in the area at the time and came to the assistance of the girl and it is important that we speak to all of these people, therefore if any of these people left before speaking to police, we urge them to contact police immediately.

I also ask any motorists who were in the vicinity around 2.10 pm today to check their dash cam footage to see if they have captured the incident.”
