SAUGATUCK, Mich. — The Allegan County Sheriff’s Office is searching for a man suspected of trying to abduct a Saugatuck High School student Thursday.
A 17-year-old female student told deputies she left the school’s building to go to her car about 10:30 a.m.
While leaning into the car at the back passenger door, a man she described as skinny, blonde, white and in his early 20s walked up behind her and grabbed her just above the waist.
The sheriff's office released a sketch of the man Friday:
He tried pulling her out of the vehicle, but she said she was able to turn, get inside the vehicle and begin kicking him.
Deputies believe the man left in a beige, early 2000s Ford Escape or Explorer.
Anyone with information about the identity of the man is asked to contact the Allegan County Sheriff’s Office or Silent Observer at 1-800-554-3633.
