Tulsa Police need your help in finding two men who tried to kidnap a teenage girl at a bus stop. It happened early Tuesday morning in the 4900 block of South 94th East Avenue.

Investigators say the 15-year old girl was walking down the street just after 7 AM, when two men in a black truck pulled up next to her. The girl told police the passenger jumped out of the truck, grabbed her arm and tried to pull her to the truck. Officers say the girl managed to escape from the men, and run to a nearby house for help.

Tulsa Police officer Scott Walton: "The girl was obviously thinking clearly enough that she was able to break free and run as opposed to the fear of being grabbed and becoming submissive and getting into the vehicle with 'em and putting herself in harm's way."

Tulsa Police are looking for two Hispanic men. The man who grabbed the girl is believed to be in his late 30's, with medium length, wavy black hair. He also had a neatly trimmed goatee. He's 5'5 to 5'9, weighs about 200 pounds and was last seen wearing a black t-shirt, black, dirty work pants and tan boots.

The only description of the driver is that he was wearing an orange hat.

The men were in a mid-80's model black truck that did have a broken right taillight.

If you might know who these men are or might have seen anything, you are asked to call Crimestoppers. That number is 596-COPS.
