2 Men Try to Abduct 10-Year-Old Girl in New Jersey: Police



    Meeting Veterans’ Special Needs in Hospice

    New Jersey police are searching for two men who they say tried to abduct a 10-year-old girl as she played outside with her friends Saturday.

    The girl was playing hide-and-seek with her friends around 9 p.m. at the Waterside Gardens apartment complex in Brick, New Jersey, when two men approached her, police said. The men called to the girl to come with them, and when she refused, they followed her, according to police. One of the men then allegedly told her that he would force her to go and grabbed her by the arm. The girl pulled away from the man and ran back home.

    Police say the men ran away to a running minivan — described as dirty and blue with silver rims — and drove away. One of the men had tattoos covering both of his arms down to his wrists; the other man may have had a tattoo on his upper right arm.

    Anyone with information is asked to call the Brick Township Police Department at 732-262-1100.
