BIRCH BAY, Wash. – Whatcom County Sheriff’s Deputies are searching for a suspect in an attempted child abduction.

A spokesperson for the Sheriff’s Office says a man dragged a 12-year-old girl off her bicycle in the 7600 block of Birch Bay Drive just after 6 p.m. Monday.

He locked the girl in the back seat of his car, but she was able to scramble into the front seat and out of the car before he could get in.

The car is described as a newer black four door sedan, possible a Honda Accord or similar in size, with a tan interior.
