EXCLUSIVE: Girl speaks to FOX 5 about attempted abduction at Herndon school bus stop

Police are searching for a man who attempted to abduct a girl while she was waiting for a bus on the way to summer school in Herndon.

Herndon police say the incident happened at around 7 a.m. Monday in the 1300 block of Springtide Place.

The girl said the suspect began talking to her at the bus stop where she was offered money to come to his house. She was the only one walking toward the bus stop at the time.

"I was at the bus stop and this guy kept on asking me to go wash the dishes and I kept on saying no," the victim told FOX 5's Tisha Lewis.

As she was trying to get away from him, the man attempted to abduct her from behind.

"As I was trying to run away, he grabbed me and tried to push me inside his backyard," the girl said.

The girl was able to get free from the man and ran home where her mother called police. The victim was not injured.

Police searched the area, but were unable to find the man.

The victim said she has seen the suspect before in the neighborhood and he lives in a house nearby the bus stop.

"He usually stands there and smokes in the mornings," she told FOX 5.

The suspect is described as a Hispanic male, 35 to 45 years of age, tall with a thin build with short black curly hair. He was wearing a long sleeve green shirt with white stripes, khaki-colored work pants with paint stains and black shoes.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call the Herndon Police at 703-435-6846.
