The men then took out a large amount of cash and offered to buy the woman’s daughter.

She refused and ran towards the school with her child.

Officers say a black or blue car was then heard “screeching” away from the scene towards Dyche Lane with three men inside.

In a statement a spokesperson for South Yorkshire Police said: “Unfortunately no number was got for the vehicle.

“The male offering to buy the daughter was in his late 30s/early 40s wearing a grey hoody with stripes down the side. He was also wearing dirty navy bottoms and a head warmer partially covering his face.

“Any further sightings of the suspected male should be reported to police as soon as possible allowing officers to attend. 8153.”
