FALMOUTH, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — Falmouth Police are investigating after they say a man attempted to abduct a teenage girl on Friday night.
The incident happened at around 10:30 p.m. when a 16-year-old girl was walking from her job in downtown Falmouth.
She said a black SUV began to follow her along Shore Street -- and the driver eventually pulled up and asked if she wanted a ride home. She declined and walked away -- and said that she later heard a car door close, and turned around on Clinton Avenue to find the man pulling her towards his car.
The girl was able to break free and run home.
The department posted a tweet describing the driver as an overweight, white male who is around six feet tall and around 40 to 50 years old. He was also described as having a deep voice and wearing a black shirt and dark pants with short, possibly balding hair.
Police said the vehicle also apparently makes a "squeaking" noise.
Anyone with information or access to surveillance video along Short Street or Clinton Avenue around the time of the incident is encouraged to reach out to Falmouth Police at (774)-255-4527.
