Police are investigating an attempted kidnapping over the weekend in northwest Austin.

Police say a 12-year-old girl was riding her bike to a friend's house between 7 p.m. and 8 p.m. Saturday night in the 5100 block of Ganymede. That’s off of Parmer Lane, about a mile and a half west of Mopac.

Police say a gray four-door car pulled up next to her. A man got out of the rear driver side door and tried to grab her and pull her off the bike.

The only description police have is that he was Hispanic, with black hair, and wearing blue jeans.

The girl was able to break away and get to her friend's house where she called police.

If you have any information, you're asked to call Austin police.
