A man approached an 11-year-old girl in Bridgeport on Tuesday morning and asked her to get into the car with him, according to police, who are investigating it as a possible attempted kidnapping.
The girl, a student at Roosevelt School, told police a man in a black four-door vehicle with a broken front headlight stopped his car on Norman Street, near the corner of Fairfield Avenue, at 9:10 a.m. and asked her to get into the vehicle, but she refused and instead kept walking.
The driver then sped away. Police officers and detectives are investigating and said they are following up on strong leads.
Anyone with information about the possible abduction attempt should call the Bridgeport Police Department at (203) 581-5201.
