NEW YORK (AP) - The NYPD is looking for a suspect who attempted to kidnap an 11-year-old girl at a bus stop in Brooklyn.

Police say the girl was standing at the corner of Rogers Avenue and Albermarle Road when a van pulled up in front and a man offered to give her a ride home.

When the girl declined, police say the man stepped out of the van and attempted to grab her. She told police she saw a wooden stick in the suspect’s hand.

Police say she ran back to her school and alerted officials, who called 911.
