Pontiac — Investigators are offering a reward for help in catching a man they say grabbed and tried to abduct two young girls playing on a sidewalk in front of a Pontiac home.
The Oakland County sheriff’s department says the search continues Sunday for a man who tried to force the 6- and 8-year-old girls into his silver four-door car Friday evening.
The department says the man grabbed one girl’s arm and forced her to the floor of the car. It says he grabbed the second girl and put her in the car.
The department says both girls managed to escape and run home, and one girl’s mother called 911.
The suspect is described as a light-skinned black man with shoulder length braids, a black T-shirt and blue jeans.
The Oakland County sheriff’s department asks anyone with tips to call 800-773-2587 or 248-858-4911.
