Girl Says Man Tried To Abduct Her In Mayfair

Posted: Updated:
PHILADELPHIA -

An 11-year-old girl tells police a man tried to abduct her Friday afternoon in Philadelphia's Mayfair neighborhood.

It happened on the 2700 block of Elbridge Street just after 3 p.m., not far from the police district headquarters on Levick Street.

Police say the girl was walking alone when a man drove up and told her to get in his van. She ran for help, and the driver took off.

Police say the van is white with tinted windows and might be a business van.

The police department's Northeast Detectives and Special Victims' Unit are handling the investigation.

We have a crew heading to the scene, and we'll bring you the latest tonight on FOX 29 News at 10.
