Police in St Thomas are investigating an attempted abduction.

They need the public’s help after two eight year old girls were approached Saturday on Owaissa Street.

A man in an older model full sized red pickup truck asked the girls if they would like to go for a ride.

When they refused, he tried to pull them inside the truck.

The girls fled to a nearby home and called police.

The suspect is described as a white man in his 40′s, approximately 5’10 with black curly hair and a beard.

He was wearing a black three-quarter length coat at the time.
