Police say the suspect, a Hispanic male in his 30s, pulled up next to the girl Tuesday afternoon as she was walking home in the 500 block of West Corporate Drive. She had just gotten out of school at nearby Marshall Durham Middle.
The suspect offered her a ride, and when she declined, he got out of his car and tried to grab her.
The girl was able to get away and ran home, and the suspect drove off.
The suspect is described as having a mustache and a thin build. He was wearing blue jeans, a white T-shirt and black boots that said "Heavy Duty" on the insoles.
He was seen driving a dark-colored four-door car.
