MANDEVILLE, La. -- The Mandeville Police Department has released a sketch of a man who allegedly tried to abduct a girl as she was getting off a school bus Tuesday.

You can see the sketch above.

Around 3:45 p.m., the 11-year-old girl was getting off of a bus near the intersection of Cambronne Street and Barbara Place, police said, when she was approached by a man.

Police say the man got out of his car and asked the girl, 'Do you need a ride home?' The girl, who was near her driveway, ran to her home and saw the man running behind her.
