REDWOOD CITY, Calif. (AP) - Police are looking for a man they say tried to kidnap a 12-year-old girl south of San Francisco.

KNTV reports (https://bit.ly/2a1gV1t ) Friday that the man was shirtless and riding a red bicycle Thursday afternoon near the intersection of Douglas and Fair Oaks avenues in the North Fair Oaks community of Redwood City when he approached the girl and asked if she was lost.

He then told her, “Don’t worry, I’ll take you,” before trying to grab her arm, the station reported.

Police say the girl was able to get free and run to a nearby elementary school and report the incident to a summer counselor.

The girl was not physically injured.

Deputies responded and searched the area but did not locate the suspect. The case remains under investigation.
