SHELTON — Sheriff’s deputies are telling Mason County residents to be on the lookout for a man who grabbed a 17-year-old girl and tried to drag her into the woods.

Around 2:30 p.m. June 7, the girl was walking home along Rasor Road between Bucktail View and Morris Creek Road in when she decided to stop and sit down, Mason County Sheriff Deputies said. The girl was approached by a man who she had never seen before, and the man asked her to take a walk with him.

The girl refused, deputies said, but the man grabbed her arm and pulled her to her feet. The man then attempted to force the girl into the woods, leading her by the arm.

Luckily, the girl was able to break free and run home, deputies said. Police called to the scene could not find the suspect.

The man is described as 6-feet tall with a healthy build and in his late 30s or early 40s. He is white, deputies said, with dark brown hair and sideburns to the middle of the ear. He was last seen wearing a dark plane t-shirt, blue jeans and off-brand athletic shoes.

Anyone who has information about this attempted abducting is encouraged to call 911.

    As long as the spelling is right we don’t need to worry about the fact that a teenaged girl was damn near abducted???? I cannot stand to see this issue deflected due to poor spelling. Many years ago we lost a teenager named Tracy West. She was my best friend, her story did not end well and she will never be able to tell her story as she was kidnapped and murdered. We need to make sure these people who are hurting our children cannot do it anymore. Whether the article is printed by a kindergardener or spelled absolutely correctly doesn’t matter. Get the informaiton out to the people!!
