CHEVIOT, OH (FOX 19) - A 14-year-old Cheviot girl is home safe following an abduction attempt Monday afternoon.
It happened around 3 p.m. at Woodbine and Washington while she was walking home from school.
Police say a heavy set white male in his 50's tried to lure Sarra into a old rusty white panel van.
"He's like, 'Get into my van' and I said 'No.' And I started running all the way down the street to my house," said Sarra. "I knew I'm supposed to go up to a house and scream for help or knock on the door and stuff, but at the moment all I wanted to do was get home because I was scared," she said.
Sarra ran home and told her father who then called police. Steven, Sarra's father, had a warning for the man who tried to abduct his daughter.
"This guy...don't even come back around here again. I'm telling you. You ever come around here again and there's going to be a lot of trouble. I guarantee you that right now," he said.
Cheviot police say Sarra did everything right except for maybe one thing.
"I told her that it would be best if she walked home with somebody rather than walking home from school alone," said Cheviot police officer Robert Uhl.
Anyone with information in the case is asked to call Cheviot police at (513) 825-2280, or CRIMESTOPPERS at (513) 352-3040.
