According to witnesses, the man stopped at the Menlo Fuel Stop on the north side of town and asked the girl for directions. When she approached, he tried to pull her inside, but she resisted and was able to break free. She ran to a nearby residence, and the suspect drove away. Sources say the man had a mask and a Green Bay Packers hat on at the time.
