The girl had exited a school bus at approximately 4:45pm on Tuesday when she was allegedly grabbed by a man off of Blackwood Crescent. She was then reportedly pulled into a black four-door sedan, driven by a second assailant, and indecently assaulted.

“The girl fought back against the man punching him a number of times before she broke from his grasp and ran away,” read the police report about the incident, “She was not injured during the incident.”

The report continues to describe one of the alleged attackers as having a “tanned complexion and a solid build”. He was seen in a black hooded jumper, black jeans and a pair of black sneakers. Currently, police have not released a description of the second man.
