Girl fights off abduction attempt

A 14-year-old girl reported that a man tried to pull her into his truck in north Wichita on Friday morning.

The girl was walking in the 2400 block of East 14th Street about 11:30 a.m., according to Wichita police.

A man driving an older model white pickup with a blue stripe pulled up behind her and tried to entice her to get in.

When she refused, he grabbed her arm. She fought him off and ran. He drove up north on Spruce Street.

The girl was not injured. Police do not have a suspect.
