July 28, 2002|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

An 8-year-old girl said a man tried to abduct her in the 8500 block of Jenkins Road in Riviera Beach yesterday afternoon, but she broke free after biting him on an arm, the police said.

While waiting for a friend, the girl told police, the 20- to 30- year-old man tried to pull her into his sport-utility vehicle just before 4 p.m. by grabbing her hair.

The girl rushed home safely.

The man was of medium build with short, curly brown hair and drove a blue or green SUV, possibly an Isuzu Rodeo. A police search did not turn up the assailant.
