A 7-year-old girl was walking with her friends (girls ages 9 and 12) Wednesday in Northeast Atlanta when a man driving a black pick-up allegedly attempted to abduct her, report the Atlanta Journal Constitution.

The man allegedly approached the girls and asked them where they was going. When they didn’t answer his question, instead continuing to walk, he stopped the truck and sprung into action.

The AJC reports:

“The man exited his truck, grabbed the 7-year-old girl, covered her mouth so that she couldn’t scream and began dragging her toward his truck,” Atlanta police Officer John Chafee said in a news release.

“The other two girls grabbed the victim and attempted to pull her away from the suspect, who then released the girl and fled the scene in his vehicle,” Chafee said.

The girls described the assailant as a black man, about 50 years old, bald, about 6 feet 1 inch tall and 200 pounds, police said. He was wearing a blue shirt, baggy shorts and red Converse All-Star shoes.

Police said the youngsters described the truck as a black full-sized pickup with silver rims, possibly spinners. The rear windows had decals of red and orange flames or lightning bolts.

Thanks to the brave actions and swift thinking of these girls, their friend is safe and sound.
