POWELL, Wyo. (AP) — Powell police say two 12-year-old girls reported that a man tried to abduct them, but they fought back and escaped.

The girls told police the man tried to pull one of them into a pickup Wednesday night near Northwest College, but they bit him and kicked him.

The Powell Tribune reports police are asking the public’s help in finding the man. He was described as between 50 to 70 years old, slender, about 6 feet tall with long, gray braided hair. He was reportedly driving a rusting gray or blue pickup from the late 1980s or early 1990s.

Police notified Park County School District No. 1, and district officials alerted parents by phone and email.

Northwest College also issued an alert through its emergency notification system.
