Riviera Beach girl escapes attempted abduction

Posted by Rachel Leigh email

RIVIERA BEACH, FL (WFLX) - It's a story that all too often ends tragically, but, this time, one local girl does everything right.

Police in Riviera Beach say a man tried to abduct an 11-year-old girl as she got off her school bus. It happened Thursday afternoon in the area of 5th Street and Avenue J.

The suspect followed the girl and told her to get into his car. Instead, police say, the girl yelled causing the suspect to take off.

Police say the man has short dreads and gold teeth. He's believed to be in his mid to late 20s and driving a newer model black 4-door vehicle with tinted windows.

If you know who he is, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-458-TIPS.
