Bike-Riding Girl Nearly Abducted

By  | 

Brazos County authorities are continuing to be on the lookout for a pair of suspects in the attempted abduction of a nine-year-old girl.

According to the sheriff's office, around 3:20 p.m. Saturday afternoon, the girl was riding her bike in Benchley when a light-colored four-door drove up alongside and grabbed her bike. The girl then told authorities those two men tried to grab her, but she was able to run to her grandmother's home nearby.

That vehicle description -- a light-colored four door car -- has been revised from the original description of it being a green car.

The suspects are described as a black male wearing a bandana, and a Hispanic male with a thin mustache wearing a black t-shirt.

If you have any information on this attempted abduction, you're asked to call the Brazos County Sheriff's Office.
