Corpus Christi police released an image Tuesday evening what they believe was a dark blue SUV used in an attempted kidnapping attempt around 3:30 p.m. in the 3700 block of Emory Street.

A 10-year-old girl told police that a man in a vehicle approached her and said that her parents had sent him to pick her up.

The girl wisely ran away and described the man as a 5-foot-6-inches tall, between the ages of 30 and 40-year-old, with short dark hair with some gray in it, and a circular tattoo on his arm.

Call police if you have any information about this at 361-886-2600.
