Luckily, the terrified child managed to escape after a fierce struggle on the staircase with her would-be kidnapper in Omsk, southwestern Siberia.
The brave girl clung with all her strength to the stairwell railing as the man sought but failed to yank her away after tailing her.
The brazen attacker then fled – possibly in fear of being caught.
A major hunt has now been launched to track down the suspected child sex attacker.
The girl told her parents and they reported the chilling attempted abduction to cops.Social mediaHe suddenly lunged towards the girl on the empty stairwell[/caption] Social mediaThe sickening moment the man grabbed hold of the girl and she bravely clung to the railing to avoid being kidnapped[/caption]

The man is believed to be 5ft 9 inches tall, with long curly hair to his shoulders and bristles on his face.
He was described as wearing a black jacket, black trousers, black boots, and a dark grey cap.
