Durham police are asking for information about an attempted abduction that was reported Wednesday afternoon on North Miami Boulevard in Wellons Village.

A 15-year-old female told officers she was walking in the Post Office parking lot on North Miami Boulevard around 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday when a male in a red car pulled up beside her, waved money at her and asked her to get in the car. The female ran, but the male got out of the car, grabbed her hand and tried to pull her into the car.

The female managed to break away from the male and escaped unharmed.

The suspect is described as a Hispanic male in his 30s or 40s, 5 feet 6 inches to 5 feet 7 inches tall with a medium build, a fair complexion and short wavy black hair. He was wearing a dark shirt with long sleeves and blue jeans. The vehicle is described as a small, older model red car similar to a Honda Civic or Nissan Sentra. It had paint chips on several places on the car, a dented hood and a black stripe on the passenger side.

Anyone with information is asked to call Investigator T.M. Ochman at 560-4440, ext. 289 or CrimeStoppers at 683-1200. CrimeStoppers pays cash rewards for information leading to arrests in felony cases and callers never have to identify themselves.
