Girl, 10, escapes rape attempt

        Police are searching for a man who attempted to rape a 10-year-old girl Monday afternoon on a Mount Auburn street.

        The girl was walking home from an errand about 3:15 p.m. when she was grabbed and pulled into a walkway area leading to a building in the 2200 block of Vine Street, police said.

        The attacker attempted to sexually assault the girl, but she kicked him and managed to get free and run, police said.

        The man was described as black, in his 30s, 5-feet-10 to 6-feet tall, with a thin build and dark complexion, police said. He was wearing a black bandanna, blue button-down shirt (possibly with the letters “L” and “D” over the pocket), dark pants and dark jacket.

        Anyone with information is asked to call the Cincinnati Police Division's personal crimes unit at 352-6474 or Crime Stoppers at 352-3040. Callers may remain anonymous.
