Police are looking for a man who is wanted for attempting to kidnap an 11-year-old girl.

Police are looking for a man who attempted to kidnap an 11-year-old girl while she watched a tennis game with her family for Arthur Ashe Kids Day at the Billie Jean King National Tennis Center on Saturday.

At 3:45 p.m. on Aug. 27, authorities said, the girl was inside Arthur Ashe Stadium with family members when a man approached her from behind, grabbed her wrist and threatened to harm her if she did not follow him, police said. The victim pulled her arm away and kicked the suspect, who ran away. There were no injuries.

The individual is described as a male, approximately 25 to 35 years old, about 200 pounds and standing at about 5 feet, 8 inches to 5 feet, 11 inches tall. He was last seen wearing a red shirt with stripes, khaki shorts, sunglasses and a tattoo with words on his right wrist.

Police previously released a video of a man thought to be the suspect but have since ruled him out.

Anyone with information in regards to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS or for Spanish 888-57-PISTA (74782). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website or texting their tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then enter TIP577.
