RIVERSIDE, Mo. (AP) - Police in the Kansas City suburb of Riverside are looking for a man who witnesses say tried to grab a 13-year-old girl waiting at a school bus stop.
Sgt. Trevor Ballard says the girl was able to get away early Monday when the man tried to pull her into a nearby wooded area. He says several people saw what was happening and yelled at the man, who let the girl go and fled.
The girl attends middle school in the Park Hill School District.
The man was described as Hispanic, in his 30s with a darker complexion, dark hair and dark eyes. He is about 5 feet 8 inches tall and had a thin goatee.
The man was wearing a black, hooded sweatshirt with multi-colored stripes.
