Abduction attempt in Wissinoming

A flash­er may have tried to ab­duct a teen­age girl in Wissi­nom­ing last week. Now, po­lice are try­ing to identi­fy the un­known man.

The in­cid­ent oc­curred on the 6000 block of Frank­ford Ave. at about 9:50 p.m. on Ju­ly 29. The man drove be­side the girl in a black pickup truck, stopped, ex­ited his vehicle and ex­posed him­self, po­lice said. The man then reached out and at­temp­ted to grab the girl by the arm.

Po­lice did not spe­cify how the vic­tim avoided the at­tack­er or how he fled the scene. Po­lice are look­ing for a white man in his 30s with a bald head who was wear­ing a red shirt and dark pants. He was driv­ing a black pickup truck. Call 215-686-TIPS or text to PP­DTIP to re­port in­form­a­tion about the case. ••
