Two girls, ages 6 and 8, were playing at a community park near Apache Trail and Signal Butte Wednesday afternoon when two males approached them in a silver car, according to Mesa police Sgt. Ed Wessing.

When they tried to run away, a suspect grabbed one of the girls by the hair. The girls were able to get away and went to a neighbor's home.

Police were called to the area, but the suspects were not located.

One of the suspects was wearing a T-shirt with a handgun design on the front.
