The girl told officers she was walking home from school near Oceano Way and Arena Drive around 4 p.m. Wednesday when a man jumped from behind a fence and grabbed her wrist.

The girl said she was able to pull away from the man. She then ran to hide behind some bushes, where she telephoned her father.

The man, who was last seen running south on Oceano Way, was described as white, about 25 years old and about 6 feet 2 inches tall. He was wearing a black mask, black gloves, a black jacket, black pants and gray shoes.
