A York City teenager walking home from school Monday afternoon foiled an apparent abduction attempt when she broke free of a man and ran into a nearby school, police said.
The 17-year-old girl was walking west on West Princess Street, then turned north onto Newberry Street when she was approached by a dark-colored Acura TSX with three males inside. The driver appeared to be in his mid-20s and his two passengers looked like teens, York City Police said.
They called out to her, but she ignored them and kept walking. Then the driver got out and grabbed her sweatshirt by its hood, according to police.
The girl struggled free and ran to nearby New Hope Academy charter school at 459 W. King St., police said.
