Royal Palm Beach girl escapes from kidnapper

ROYAL PALM BEACH, FL (WFLX) - Investigators with the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office continue to search for a suspect after an attempted abduction in a Royal Palm Beach neighborhood this weekend.

Authorities say a man in a white van stopped near a 14-year old girl in the 200 black of La Manza Avenue on Friday, got out of the passenger side, and pulled the girl's arm.

Police say the girl kicked her way out of the man's hold and broke free.

The abduction attempt happened in broad daylight, officials said.

Deputies are looking for a man in his 30s or 40s, about 190 pounds with dark greasy hair and bushy eyebrows.

Anyone with information is asked to call CrimeStoppers at 1-800-458-TIPS.
