Teen escapes Frankford abduction attempt

A 14-year-old school­girl es­caped a would-be ab­duct­or after a struggle on a Frank­ford street last Fri­day.

The vic­tim was walk­ing to school at about 7:30 a.m. on the 2100 block of Gran­ite St. when an un­known man in a Scream mask ex­ited a car, grabbed the girl from be­hind and tried to cov­er her mouth, ac­cord­ing to po­lice. The vic­tim broke free, ran to school and re­por­ted the in­cid­ent. She de­scribed the at­tack­er as 5 feet 9 inches tall and 200 pounds with a gray hood­ie, black sweat­pants and a Scream mask cov­er­ing his face. He drove a four-door white sedan, pos­sibly a Pon­tiac, with tin­ted win­dows.
