Clackamas County Sheriff’s deputies are investigating after a 10-year-old girl said a man tried to abduct her Saturday night near Molalla.

According to deputies, the young girl said she was pushing her bike home from a friend’s house when she saw a man in the bushes who appeared to be touching himself near Acer Lane and Rosewood Way.

She said the man began chasing her, so she jumped on her bike and rode off. The man grabbed her foot, but she was able to get away. Deputies said she reported the incident as soon as she got home.

The girl said the man was Hispanic with a mustache, and was between 40 and 50 years old. He was wearing jeans, boots and a dark baseball cap.

Deputies believe the man is associated with an older-model red van that has been seen in the area.

Anyone with information, is asked to call Clackamas County Sheriff's Office's confidential Tip Line at (503) 723-4949 or by using the online e-mail form:
