Deputies looking for attempted kidnapper


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- The New Hanover County Sheriff's Office is looking for a man who attempted to kidnap a teenager.

Deputies say around 11 a.m. Monday an 18-year-old female was selling magazines door to door in a neighborhood near Myrtle Grove Road. They say a man in a silver pickup truck pulled up beside the teen and asked her if she needed a ride. She said no. That's when the man reached through the car window, grabbed her by the hair and assaulted her.

The man is described as a white male in his late twenties or early thirties with light brown hair and a scruffy beard. He was wearing blue jeans and a white t-shirt.

Anyone with information is asked to call the New Hanover County Sheriff's Office at (910) 798-4161.
