Police: Man attempted to abduct 8-year-old girl

Warren County Sheriff's Deputies are searching for a man who is accused of trying to abduct two young girls in Deerfield Township.

Deputies say the 8-year-old and 11-year-old sisters were playing outside the clubhouse in their apartment complex in Deerfield Township when the suspect approached the 8-year-old girl from behind and attempted to carry the girl away. She screamed and kicked her legs to resist, her sister heard her screams, ran over and saw the suspect running away through the complex roadway.

The suspect is described as a tall male wearing a black hoody pulled over his head, black pants with a white strip running down the legs and thin black gloves. He also had a black gym bag which he picked up off the ground before he fled.

Anyone who may have seen such an individual last evening in the area or may have information in this offense is urged to call the Warren County Sheriff's Office Deerfield Post at 513-701-1800 or CRIMESTOPPERS at 513-352-3540.
