APD investigates attempted abduction

Posted: Updated:

The Austin Police Department is investigating a report of an attempted abduction in South Austin.

According to the citizen observer website, a girl was walking near Barton Spring Road and South Lamar last week when a man tried to take her. The girl was able to get away and we're told is doing fine.

Police are now looking for the suspect who she said ran away toward riverside drive.

He is described as a white man in his early 20s with facial hair. He was last seen wearing a blue and black checkered jacket with a fur collar, a black t-shirt, black beanie with green pants and a black backpack.

Anyone with information on this alleged abduction is asked to call police.
