Man in white van tried to grab Mansfield teen, police said

MANSFIELD — Police are looking for a masked suspect in a white van who they reported tried to grab a 15-year-old girl as she was walking home Tuesday.

The girl told police she had just gotten off the school bus in the 1000 block of Remington Ranch Road about 3 p.m.

A white van stopped behind her and someone she believed to be a man wearing a black ski mask, a denim jacket, black pants and tennis shoes, jumped out of the van and tried to grab her, police said.

The girl ran to her house and told her parents, who contacted police, said Thad Penkala, police spokesman.

Police searched the area, but could not locate the suspect, authorities said. Police ask that anyone who knows anything about this suspect, or the vehicle, contact them at 817-473-0211.
