The girl told investigators she was walking when a man got out of a parked pickup truck and “attempted to physically push her inside,” police said. “The girl was able to escape and ran to safety.”
The suspect is described as a white man, likely in his 30s, with an average build and average height. The suspect vehicle is described as a dark-colored pickup truck with a crew cab. Police released photos of a truck that “appears to be a 2010 Dodge Ram 1500” with aftermarket wheels and “what appears to be a missing center cap from the rear passenger side wheel.”
Anyone with information on the incident, or on a possible suspect, is asked to call 911 or Detective Vince Lopez, 720-887-5249.
