Police look for suspect in attempted child abduction

Posted: Updated:

Arlington police are looking for a man who grabbed, and tried to abduct, a twelve year old girl.

Officers say the girl was in front of her apartment complex on the city's east side Thursday night when the man wrapped his arm around her neck and put his hand over her mouth.

The girl says the man dragged her several feet but she was able to fight him off and break free.

Cheryel Carpenter of the Arlington police department said, "According to investigators, she was able to bite the suspect. She was able to get away after he released his hand from her mouth and she was able to scream for help."

The suspect is described as a Hispanic man in his twenties with curly hair.
