A bus driver intervened after a man tried to grab onto a Hitchin sixth-former’s arm at a bus stop.
Police have received a report of a man approaching the 17-year-old Priory School student while she was waiting at a bus stop near Redhill Road, and “behaving inappropriately” towards her.
Priory School head Geraint Edwards said a bus driver then intervened, with the police contacted afterwards.
“The female student is fine and her family are working with the police to identify the male involved in the incident,” he said.
“There has been some social media ‘gossip’ that has been picked up about someone attempting to lure girls with alcohol, but the school has no knowledge of this and the police have not informed us of any concerns.”
