MIAMI (CBS4) – Miami Police are asking the public’s help in identifying a man who attempted to abduct a teenager as she waited for the bus Wednesday morning.

Authorities say the 16 year old girl was sitting on the bench at the corner of Northwest 42 Avenue and 7 Street at around 7 a.m. when a man drove by her trying to get her attention.

The teen ignored him, but the man reportedly returned a few minutes later. Police say, this time he got out of the car and grabbed the girl by the arm and tried to pull her into the car.

Holding on to the bus bench, the girl screamed for help. A female passerby yelled for the man to let her go. He did, but police say as he left, he blew her a kiss and laughed as a got in the car and drove off.

He also told her he would see her the next day.

Anyone with information is being urged to contact Miami Police, or call Miami-Dade Crimestoppers at (305) 471-TIPS.
