CONROE, Texas - A second incident involving an attempted abduction in Montgomery County was made public Wednesday.
The Montgomery County Sheriff's Office and Conroe Independent School District reported the incident in light of an ongoing investigation at a bus stop.
The newly released details of the Nov. 12 confrontation revealed that the incident happened while 14-year-old Ashley (the victim's real name was not used) was walking to her friend's house on Pine Acres Drive in Conroe.
“I was walking to my neighbor's house, and this car kept going back and forth, and I got suspicious,” Ashley told KPRC. The man "got out of his car and started running, or pacing towards me ... and he started yelling ‘Help! Help! I need help with my car!’”
Ashley jumped into a ditch near the road. The man was persistent. But so was Ashley.
“I gave him the weirdest look. And then he put his hands on his head and he’s, like, ‘No please, please, please, I need help, I’ll give you twenty bucks' ... Once he realized I wasn’t going to help him, he ran to his car and sped away.”
The latest incident took place Tuesday morning, several miles away from the initial incident. A student was attacked and thrown to the ground by what appeared to be the same man, driving the same car, investigators said.
The incident was reported at 5:50 a.m. at the corner of Brook Hollow Drive and Glen Forest Drive on the east side of Interstate 45 near FM 1488.
Montgomery sheriff deputies said the girl was waiting on her bus to arrive when a man between the ages of 30 and 40 approached her from behind. Deputies said the man said something to her and in response to her yelling no, threw her to the ground and she started to fight back.
The vehicle in both incidents is described as a tan/beige/brown four-door passenger car. The suspect is described as a six-foot black male, weighing roughly 200 pounds.
Students approaching the bus stop called 911.
Conroe ISD police and Montgomery deputies are investigating the incident.
Police advise students to stay with a buddy and to not talk with strangers.
Anyone with information about the incidents is asked to call the Conroe Police Department at 936-709-8911.
