A 12-year-old Gilbert girl says a man dressed in all black wearing a ski mask tried to abduct her.

The girl said the incident happened while waiting outside the Sahara Palms Apartments off Country Club Drive and south of Baseline Road.

She said the man grabbed her arm and tried to take her but she fought back and he took off.

Gilbert police spokesman Jesse Sanger said there are no other witnesses.

Police are adding extra officers to the area to hopefully find the suspect.
