Tyler Teen Fights Off Kidnapper

A North Tyler teenager was able to ward off a possible abductor last Thursday. The incident happened on North Owens.

A man known in the neighborhood tried to pull a 13-year old girl into his truck, while saying things of a sexual nature to her. Police say the girl had been visiting with friends earlier in the day, but was alone during the attack.

The girl managed to get away from her attacker, but waited several days before reporting the incident. Police are still looking for the man.
