SRPD: Man tried to pull teen girl into van

Incident occurs in afternoon on residential street between two schools

Editor's note: The San Ramon Police Department has canceled this abduction-attempt investigation and has deemed the teen's original story was fabricated, according to a follow-up statement from Lt. Denton Carlson just after 9 a.m. Wednesday.

Police are looking for a man who allegedly tried to pull a 13-year-old girl into his van while she was walking in San Ramon on Monday afternoon.

The girl was walking in the area of Davona Drive and Northland Avenue -- between Country Club Elementary and Pine Valley Middle schools -- at 3:11 p.m. when a man pulled up in a white minivan and told the girl to get inside, according to San Ramon police Lt. Denton Carlson.

She refused, so he got out of the van and grabbed her wrist. She pulled her arm free and ran. The man drove away in the other direction, Carlson said.

The culprit was described as a white man about 40 years old standing 5 feet 10 inches tall with a muscular build. He had short blond hair and a beard and was wearing a blue T-shirt and black jeans.
