A Newark Police report shows a suspect tried to abduct a 15-year-old girl on two different occasions.

The first occurred in front of the Newark YMCA on Tuesday afternoon. The report says a suspect, driving a silver Dogde Dakota truck, asked the girl if she’d like a ride.

The second incident occurred yesterday morning on Hoover Street. The report says the same suspect stopped the truck and told the victim she’d “better get in…or else”.

The victim got away on both occassions.
