Police: Man tried to abduct Levittown girl
Police say an 11-year-old Levittown girl was followed by a man who attempted to grab her in her driveway Wednesday.
In a weird twist, police say Joanna Ryan, the girl who was killed in a Bethpage car crash Wednesday night, was with the victim when it happened.
Police say Ryan and friend, Jillian Duffy, were walking home from school on Hahn Avenue when the man tried to grab Duffy?s arm. Duffy says she kicked the man in the leg and he fled the scene.
Detectives ask anyone with information regarding the incident to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-244-TIPS.
Cops say a similar incident involving a man and 12-year-old boy happened nearby Monday.
