Evansville Police are investigating a possible abduction attempt that happened around Maryland and Lafayette on Friday afternoon.

Officials say the man began talking to her as she continued walking. According to the girl, the man got out of the truck when she did not stop to talk to him and started walking towards her.

The victim said she started to run away, and the man chased her for a short distance. She said he eventually ran back to his truck and left.

She described the man as a black male in his mid 30's, around 5'9" and 155lbs. It is reported the man has corn rows in his hair and a mustache with some gray in it.

She said the pickup's left rear tail light was broken out.
