The girl said she was able to break free and ran to her mother to report what happened.
“Be safe around strangers, because you never know if they can hurt you or not,” the girl told WFTV.
The mother of the little girl told WFTV that she was thankful her daughter was able to defend herself.
"She was able to stop this from being the worst day of my life as a parent," the mother told WFTV.
The girl said the man was in a smaller convertible with a white stripe along its side. She described as the attempted kidnapper as a white man in his 50s or 60s with hazel eyes, a shaved spot on his head with gray hair on the sides and a crooked finger.
Police told Jacobs that they're working on a composite sketch to release to the public. Visit WFTV.com for updates.
