Creep tries abducting 16-year-old girl on Bronx street
A twisted creep tried to abduct a teenage girl on a Bronx street Saturday morning, cops said.
The 16-year-old teen told cops she was walking near the intersection of Grand Concourse and Clarke Place in the South Bronx about 6:10 a.m. when a skinny man with a mustache snuck up from behind and grabbed her.
She told police he put his hands over her mouth and threatened, “Shut up, I have a gun,” cops said.
As he dragged her toward his black sedan, which had a green baby stroller in the back seat, he lost his balance and they both fell. The terrified girl bit his hand and screamed for help, authorities said.
The man got into his car and sped off southbound on Grand Concourse.
Medics took the girl to Bronx Lebanon Hospital with a cut on the right side of her face.
She told police the would-be kidnapper seemed to have an an African accent, was bald, and looked to be in his 30s or 40s.
