Albany police are investigating an attempted abduction.
Police responded to the 400 block of Sheridan Avenue Tuesday following reports a man tried to force a teen into his vehicle.
The victim told officers she was walking on Central Avenue when a man approached her on the sidewalk and tried to engage her in conversation.
She told the man that she wasn't interested and walked away.
The man then supposedly approached her once again, grabbed her by the wrist and began to pull her towards a dark colored SUV.
The victim was able to break free and notify police.
