Wichita police are investigating a possible attempted abduction in the 900 block of E. Harry.

A 10-year-old girl says she was walking in that area at around 7:45 Monday evening when a man in a green car similar to a Ford Fusion with "Lamborgini doors" tried to kidnap her.

She says the man pulled up next to her and told her that her mother wanted him to take her home and put a cigarette and lighter in her hands. She ran. She says he chased after her yelling at her to come back. She hid in a church area with the man driving around looking for her, then left.

She went home and told her mother.

She said the man was black, in his 20s, 5'7", 160 lbs. He had LOVE tattooed on his forehead. He also had a lip piercing and stretched (gauged) earlobes with earrings. He was wearing a black shirt and blue jeans.

An eyewitness says he saw the car she described at a car wash in that area.
