Teenager in Lisburn telephone box ordeal


This is the man police want to question about the false imprisonment of an 18-year-old girl.

The teenager was held in a phone box against her will by a man who then demanded money.

Police said the incident took place in the Blaris Park area of Lisburn on January 27. However, details have only just been released.

The victim was using a public phone box at around 10.50pm when a foreign national held her inside against her will by forcing the door closed. The suspect then demanded money from the victim. But he was disturbed by a passer-by and ran off empty-handed.

She was not injured, but was left shaken by the incident.

Police said the suspect is in his late 20s or early 30s, around 5ft 5in tall and extremely slim. He had swarthy skin and oval face with sunken eyes and pointed chin.

It is understood he was wearing a hoodie with the hood up and two gold chains around his neck.

Police have produced a computer generated image to try and track down the culprit.

Anyone who recognises the image should contact detectives at Lisburn on 0845 600 8000.
