Police are searching for a man who tried to abduct a 7-year-old girl in Fridley.

The Anoka County Sheriff's Office says the abduction attempt was made on the 7300 block of Taylor Street Northeast at 12:51 p.m. Friday.

A man pulled alongside a 7-year-old girl and then pulled her into his car.

The sheriff's office says the child "was able to break away from the vehicle and flee on foot."

They are now looking for the person responsible, and have released pictures of the suspect's vehicle: a red Acura RSX two-door.

Anyone with information should call 763-427-1212.

The incident happened just days before another luring attempt in Inver Grove Heights on Monday, which saw a man try to entice two girls into his van.
