Avenue shortly before 6:30 p.m. Sunday June 16, a man approached her and told her she
was coming with him, according to police.

physically force her, but she punched him and was able to run away.

into potential suspects but started to doubt the report was true. Both
girls later admitted the story was false, according to police.
