ROTTERDAM -- Detectives believe a middle-aged man tried to kidnap a 15-year-old girl on Duanesburg Road Sunday evening, town police said.
The teen was walking east, near the intersection of Risoli Lane, when a car pulled up beside her at about 8 p.m., police said. The girl told officers that the driver got out of the car, yelled "Hey!" and grabbed her by the wrist.
The victim wrestled her arm from the man's grasp and ran back to her friend's house, a short distance away, police said. She was not injured.
The suspect is described as a white man in his fifties wearing glasses, a white t-shirt and a black hooded sweatshirt. His car is described as a red four-door Honda, which fled in an unknown direction.
