ANCHORAGE - Police say a man tried to abduct a sixth-grade student in east Anchorage in a case similar to three attempted abductions last January.
Police say the girl was walking to Clark Middle School Tuesday morning when a man in a gray or silver SUV with tinted windows asked if there was a school nearby then invited her into the SUV.
Police say the girl fell as she ran away and the man ran over her foot. Lt. Dave Parker says the girl was slightly injured.
The suspect is described as a light-skinned black man in his early 20s. The suspect in the January abductions also targeted girls in east Anchorage, was described as a young black man, drove an SUV and struck the girls with his vehicle. Parker says there were no serious injuries.
