Police are searching for a man they want to talk after a woman was almost abducted from a Melbourne apartment block.
The woman, 23, was followed into the building in Southbank just after 2am on Saturday.
Police said the woman was unaware of the man until he got into the lift with her.
She got out at her floor, and walked to the door before she was grabbed from behind.
The man covered her nose and mouth, and wrapped his arm around her waist, pulling her away from the door.
The woman was able to break free of the man’s grasp and ran into her apartment, and the offender fled.
“The man is described as being aged in his 20s, thin build, brown eyes, dark eyebrows and clean shaven,” police said.
He was wearing a black hooded top, blue jeans, black runners with white edges and a black cap with a white logo.
Police have released CCTV images of a man they believe may be able to assist with their enquiries.
Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
