An attempted abduction saw a man escape after being dragged into a car in Ellesmere Port .
Three men wrestled the victim into the dark green Proton as he strolled along Oil Sites Road.
After bravely struggling free, the 31-year-old was able to hide in the 'undergrowth' until it was safe.
Under the cover of darkness the incident happened at about 11pm on August 6.
Police have launched an appeal to help find the trio of suspects.
The driver is described as white, in his early 20s and of slim build. He has ginger wavy hair which stuck up, freckles and a metal brace on his teeth. He was wearing jeans and a hoody.
The front seat passenger is white, in his mid 20s with black hair and acne on his face.
The third suspect ‘looked similar’, but his hair was parted in the middle. He is in his mid-to-late teens and of stocky build. He was wearing blue jeans and a black coat.
Cheshire Police said ‘all three men have Irish accents’.
