Lakewood police are looking for a man who they say jumped out of the bushes Friday and tried to kidnap a 15-yearold girl.
The girl was walking in the 14400 block of Woodbrook Drive Southwest when the man tried to drag her away, said Lt. Chris Lawler.
She was able to escape after punching the man and biting his fingers, Lawler said.
The suspect was described as black, between 20 and 30, and roughly 6 feet tall with a heavy build, a thin mustache and a wide, flat nose. He was wearing a black skull cap, a black hooded sweatshirt, dark blue jeans and dark-colored shoes.
The man fled in a Honda Civic or Toyota Camry with dark tinted windows.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Lakewood Police Department at 253-830-5046. Anonymous tipsters may call Crime Stoppers at 253-591-5959.
