An Odin man was arrested Tuesday in connection with an attempted abduction of a 15-year-old girl in Salem on Sunday night.

Allen Hill was arrested Tuesday night when the girl picked him out of a photo lineup, police said, according to WJBD.

According to WJBD, the girl was out for a run in Bryan Memorial Park around 10 p.m. Sunday when Hill drove past her in a pickup. Hill turned around and asked the girl to get into the truck, police said.

When the girl refused, police told WJBD, Hill opened the driver’s door and grabbed her by the arm, trying to pull her into the truck.

She was able to break away and run to a nearby hospital, according to police.
