Police: girl fought off would-be abductor

Police in eastern Kentucky are trying to find a man who they say tried to abduct a young girl.

Police say the nine-year-old was waking on Evergreen Road in Flat Lick in Knox County on Monday night when a man in a van pulled along side her and tried to force her inside.

Police say she fought him and was able to get away and run home for help.

The man was driving a full size Chevrolet utility van, which was white with brown stripes and tinted windows.

The girl says the van has double opening doors on the side and that the paint was peeling.
