A 28-year-old man has been arrested in west Belfast on suspicion of attempted child abduction.

Police say they received reports that a 14-year-old girl was approached by a man driving a black coloured car on Thursday evening.

It is alleged that the girl who was walking with another female on Sliabh Dubh View, off the Springfield Road in west Belfast, was asked to get into the car.

The teenager ran off and the man drove away.

Police are appealing for anyone who may have more information to contact them.
