FALLS TOWNSHIP, Pa. (CBS) — Police in Falls Township (Bucks County) have a released a sketch of a man they’re looking for in connection with the attempted abduction of a teenage girl last week near a mobile home park.

Falls Township police lieutenant Hank Ward says incident occurred as the 13-year-old girl was walking alone near the Pennwood Crossing Mobile Home Park on Bristol Pike about 4:30pm last Wednesday afternoon.

“He approached her in a full-size, tan pickup truck with four doors with an open bed in the back, and asked her if she was okay.  She stated yes, she continued to walk.  He stopped the truck and began to follow her on foot,” according to Lt. Ward.

But that’s when a good Samaritan who apparently saw what was happening intervened and pulled his car in between the girl and the man, allowing her to run away.

The suspect is described as biracial, with a light complexion, between 40 and 50 years old, about six feet tall, with a “large” build, short hair (mostly white with some black), and “light, scruffy” facial hair (white).

Police believe this was an isolated incident and not related to alleged abduction attempts of children in nearby Morrisville, Pa. over the summer.
