Two attempted abductions in the North East are not being treated as linked at this stage.
Detectives at Wodonga and Wangaratta are investigating incidents that occurred in each city on the same day.
However, links are yet to be drawn between the attempts and the descriptions for the suspects involved do not match.
An attempted abduction of a girl at Wareena Park at 4pm on Thursday was reported to Wangaratta police.
Wodonga police also responded to an attempted abduction that day.
That incident occurred at the intersection of Sangsters Road and Kelly Street in Wodonga, between 11.55am and 12.05pm.
Wodonga Criminal Investigation Unit Acting Detective Sergeant Sarah Kendall told The Border Mail a 13-year-old female was walking west along Sangsters Road, on the southern side of the footpath.
"She was approached by a Caucasian male, five-foot-six of stocky build and with short brown hair," she said.
"He was wearing a white T-shirt with a red logo.
"She says he got out of a small white vehicle, has grabbed her by the top of each arms, on top of her clothing and attempted to drag her to the car of which the door was open.
"She's then shaken the male off her and ran to the Caltex service station.
"It was the middle of the day and quite brazen."
IN OTHER NEWS:
Officers arrived at the service station minutes later but could not find the man, whose white T-shirt had a red logo described as being similar to a tattoo design.
