SUMMERVILLE, S.C. (WCBD) – The Summerville Police Department is searching for people who may have witnessed a Thursday afternoon attempted kidnapping.

According to Summerville PD, the incident happened around 1:48 p.m. while a girl was playing in the front yard of her home near West Richardson Avenue.

The girl said that a white man wearing khaki pants and a dark green hat grabbed her arm and pulled her, but she was able to run away.

Summerville PD is asking anyone who lives in the area and has security cameras to share footage from between 1:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m.
