ANCHORAGE, Alaska — Anchorage police say a sixth-grade student at Clark Middle School reported an attempted abduction as she walked to school Tuesday morning. Police say the report has “striking similarities” to attempted abductions that occurred in January.
The girl says that as she was walking to school around 7:25 a.m., a man in a silver or gray SUV asked if there was a school nearby and invited her to get in his vehicle. The girl declined and ran away, but slipped and fell. The suspect then ran the SUV over the victim’s foot.
Police say the suspect is described as a light-skinned black male in his early 20s with a thin build, short hair and no facial hair. He was wearing a beige or light tan hoodie, and the SUV is described as silver or gray with tinted windows.
Police were not able to locate a suspect or vehicle matching the description.
