Police seek tips in grabbing of girl, 13

Posted: Updated:

Police investigating an incident where a 13-year-old girl was grabbed by a stranger on her way to school last month are looking for help from the public.

Lancaster police on Wednesday released a surveillance photograph of a man they described as a potential witness or person of interest in the case.

The photograph was taken at a local business shortly after the November 26 incident in the 100 block of Nevin Street.

Police previously reported that a man grabbed the student before a citizen saw something was happening and pushed him away from the girl. The student then ran to Reynolds Middle School and reported the incident to the staff. She was not injured.

The man in the photo was seen walking from the area and may have witnessed the incident, and may have information that would assist in the investigation, police said.

Anyone with information is asked to call Lancaster Bureau of Police at 717-735-3300 or Lancaster City/County Crime Stoppers at (800) 322-1913.
