Police are investigating the attempted abduction of a woman at Lithgow yesterday morning.

The 19 year old woman was walking along Mort Street just after midnight when a man pulled up in a white van and asked for directions before driving off.

Police say he returned and attempted to pull the woman into the van by her hair, but she managed to break free and run away.

The man's been described as Caucasian, between 25 and 30, with short red/blonde hair and heavily tattooed on his arms and neck.

He also had a tear-drop tattoo under his right eye.

The white van has a sliding rear door and a 'Fox' sticker in the rear window.

Police are calling for anyone with information to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
