Girl breaks free of abduction attempt in Wallingford

Sexual-assault detectives are investigating the attempted abduction of a 13-year-old girl as she was walking to a bus stop in Wallingford Thursday afternoon.

A man walked up behind the girl around 5 p.m., grabbed her jacket sleeve and said he wanted her to go with him, Seattle police reported. The victim turned around, kicked the man, allowing her to break free and run home.

The incident was reported to police four hours later. Police described the suspect as a heavily built white man in his 60s, 6-foot-1 to 6-foot-3, with gray hair and a gray beard. He was wearing a black baseball hat, black jacket and black pants.
