A girl was attacked, sexually assaulted and robbed in Lower Chanceford Township this week, according to state police.

Investigators are searching for a man driving a blue hatchback, police said. Initially, investigators thought they were looking for a van, but on Thursday morning they updated that description.

State police said they now believe the attacker fled the scene in a blue, older-model hatchback, perhaps from the 1990s.

He's described as white, balding, between 40 and 50 years old, between 5-feet-10 and 6 feet tall, with a medium to heavy build, police said.

According to police, the assault happened on River Road, not far from Slab Road, on Monday evening. Police received a report of the attack at 6:50 p.m. Monday.

The girl, whose age was not released by police, said the man grabbed her from behind, causing her to fall to the ground, according to police.

She was sexually assaulted while on the ground, police said.

Afterward, the attacker stole the girl's personal belongings and fled the area, according to police.

Anyone with information about the identity or location of the attacker or his vehicle is urged to call state police at their York County barracks, 717-428-1011.
