Girl flees abduction attempt in Frankford

A 12-year-old Frank­ford girl es­caped what may have been an ab­duc­tion at­tempt near a neigh­bor­hood El sta­tion on March 4.

The vic­tim was walk­ing along Mar­garet Street to­ward the Mar­garet-Or­tho­dox Sta­tion at about 3:10 p.m. when an un­known man driv­ing a black SUV pulled along­side her and asked if she wanted a ride home. As the girl con­tin­ued to walk, the man fol­lowed her, of­fer­ing her a ride and ask­ing how old she is, po­lice said. The girl ran home and told her grand­fath­er about the in­cid­ent.

The of­fend­er was de­scribed as black, in his 30s or 40s and bald with dark skin and a clean shaven face. The vehicle was de­scribed as a black SUV, pos­sibly a Ford Ex­plorer. Call 215-686-TIPS or text to PP­DTIP to re­port in­form­a­tion. ••
