attempted abduction

PENN FOREST TOWNSHIP — State police are trying to identify the person who tried to lure a girl into his vehicle twice in the past week in Carbon County.

Troopers say the man approached a 13-year-old girl after she got off the school bus at the intersection of Sweet Briar Lane and Behrens Road near Albrightsville.

Both times, he allegedly asked her if she wanted a ride home. The girl told police he was driving an older model, dark green vehicle with a strong exhaust odor.

Investigators said the suspect is a male, short, with a thin build, between 35-45 years of age with short gray and white hair and a beard.

If you saw anything, you’re asked to call state police at Lehighton at 610-377-4270.
