Teen Escapes Abduction Attempt At Bus Stop

DUDLEY, Mass. – A 16-year-old broke free from a man who tried to pull her into his car at a school bus stop last week, police said.

The teen was waiting for a bus to drop off her sister when the man drove up next to her, opened his passenger-side door and grabbed her wrist. The girl was able to break away and then ran home and called the police.

Police continued to look for the suspect, who they described as a black male, 30 to 40 years old, 160 to 170 pounds, with short dreads and a possible Jamaican accent.

The suspect’s vehicle was described as an older model with four doors, white exterior and tan interior. Police said that there should be damage to the passenger-side headlight and a dent in the passenger-side door, which was a result of the teen kicking it as she escaped.
