PERRY, Iowa (AP) — Authorities are looking for a man suspected in the attempted abduction of three girls on the west side of Perry. Perry police say the man stopped his car about 8 p.m. Friday and asked the girls, ages 8 and 9, for directions to a convenience store. He then tried to get the girls into the car, asking for them to show him the way. Police say that when the girls refused, the man made a lewd comment and pointed at his crotch. The girls ran to a neighbor’s house.
