The Mason County Sheriff’s Office is asking the public for help in finding a suspect in the attempted abduction of a 17-year-old girl.
About 2:30 p.m. June 7, a Sunday, the girl was walking home along East Rasor Road between East Bucktail View and Morris Creek Road, near Belfair. When she stopped and sat down, a man approached her and asked her to take a walk with him. She refused, and the man grabbed her arm, pulled her to her feet and tried to force her to walk into the woods with him. The girl broke free and ran back to her house.
The suspect is described as a 6-foot-tall white man in his late 30s or early 40s with short brown or black hair. He had no facial hair and wore sideburns to the middle of his ear. He was last seen wearing a dark plain T-shirt, blue jeans and off-brand athletic shoes. He did not have any visible tattoos.
Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call 911 or the Mason County Sheriff’s Office at 360-427-7761.
