PACIFICA (CBS SF) — Police said a 10-year-old girl escaped from a kidnapping attempt in Pacifica Sunday evening.

The victim told police that while she was in the area of Beach Boulevard and Santa Rosa Avenue, a man approached her and told her she was coming with him, according to police Chief Jim Tasa.

When the girl refused, the man attempted to physically force her, but she punched him and was able to run away.

The girl was not injured. Police searched the area but did not locate the suspect, who was last seen on Santa Rosa Avenue, running toward Palmetto Avenue.

The suspect was described as a white male adult, 30 to 40 years old, with brown hair. He was 6 feet tall, with a stocky build and a tan complexion, and wearing blue jeans, a red checkered shirt and black shoes.
