A man in Philadelphia allegedly tried to abduct a teenager while wearing a mask made popular by the movie "Scream." The mask features a white "ghost" face that is quite creepy and has become a staple on Halloween since the film was originally released back in 1996. According to a video report by GeoBeats, investigators are looking for the suspect who may be dangerous.
A 14-year-old girl told police that she was walking to school when a man wearing the mask "stepped out of a vehicle and grabbed her from behind." He covered her mouth in an effort to keep her from screaming (ironically) but the teen was able to get away from him. She ran to school where she told an adult what had happened.
Police are asking for the public's help in this case. The suspect is believed to be 5'9" and roughly 200 pounds. Police believe he was driving a 4-door white sedan, possibly a Pontiac.
