Guards riding shotgun to protect students

SECURITY guards in clearly marked cars escorted school buses through several Gold Coast suburbs yesterday after thousands of parents were warned there had been multiple attempts to abduct children.

The guards, from First Response security International, were brought in by Surfside buses after a letter warning of the abduction attempts was circulated to parents of children at four Coast schools, reports the Gold Coast Bulletin.

On Tuesday a man reportedly grabbed an eight-year-old girl, trying to force her into a car as she waited for her school bus in Surfers Paradise. The girl said she escaped by kicking the man in the genitals and running off.

The attack was the third attempted abduction in the past three weeks. The others were at Kingscliff near the NSW border on October 9 and Casuarina, just south of Kingscliff, on October 16.
