A man's been charged after a woman was twice forced into a van in Southampton.

Police are appealing for witnesses to contact them if they saw a series of alleged assaults in the Millbrook area of the city between 2.30-3.30pm Sunday 9 June.
 
A 23-year-old woman told police a man forced her into a white Iveco Daily van in Tindale Road at about 2.30pm.  
 
The man then drove away, but had to stop for traffic at the junction of Atherley Road and Green Lane, where the woman said she jumped from the van.
