Detectives are continuing to appeal for witnesses to an incident in Aveley last month.
We received a call shortly after 5.25pm on Wednesday 24 November reporting a teenage girl had been grabbed by a man on Stifford Road around 15 minutes earlier.
Thankfully, she was not injured.
The man was described as wearing a dark coloured hoodie and blue jeans, and may have been travelling on a push bike prior to the incident.
A 32-year old local man was arrested on Wednesday 8 December in connection with the offence, on suspicion of kidnapping.
He has since been released under investigation while our enquiries continue.
