Updated on 8th June when a second abduction attempt was reported.

We would just like to make people, especially young women, aware of this story that was posted on the group earlier this week.

I just want people to know that my daughter who is 21 years old, was out having a walk on the Arenal when she was approached by a man using Google translate to ask her to go for a coffee at his place. She of course said no and then two friends of his approached her and started hassling her to go with them so she told them firmly no.

They then followed her down the Arenal before branching off. She called me as she was walking as quickly as she could towards the Parador before she realised that they had followed her in a white van and a car.

She crossed over to the other side and continued to walk as quickly as she could towards her apartment only to realise that they were now driving toward her. They then jumped out of the van so she turned back toward the Parador but it appeared to be closed.

They drove past her and were going to stop so she ran down by the side of the canal towards her friends house but fell over hurting herself. She has epilepsy and started to feel an attack coming on but we kept talking on Whatsapp as she hobbled towards her friends house.

In the meantime they had driven around and were now coming up behind her. She ran and made it to her friends house who went out with his friends and managed to apprehend them. Obviously they are involving the police but they will no doubt do nothing as it’s her word against theirs. But be warned and on the look out. She said they were foreign and not of English or Spanish origin. A very scary experience.

LATER …….

I posted a message about my daughter being followed earlier tonight. I just wanted to let you all know that it has been reported to the police and they are taking it very seriously and are looking for the vehicles involved. Please be careful as this could very easily have ended badly for my daughter tonight. They were extremely determined to snatch her and she was literally running as fast as she could to get away from them.

“Another attempted kidnapping a girl last Thursday. It was close to the second mountain. According to witnesses, they were two foreigners with a grey car accompanied by a motorcycle.
