Police say 11-year-old girl abducted by naked man in alley
(WOUB) - Authorities in Wheeling, West Virginia, say an 11 year old girl was left in Ohio after being abducted and sexually assaulted by a naked man.

Police say the girl knocked on the door of a house just across the Ohio River in Bridgeport, Ohio, Tuesday night, saying she'd been kidnapped and raped.

Wheeling Police Lieutenant Gary Gaus says earlier, the girl and a friend had been approached from behind by a man asking a question. When the girls turned and saw he was nude, they ran. Gaus says the man caught one girl and dragged her to a pickup truck.

After being released about 40 minutes later, the girl was treated at a hospital.

Police say the abduction occurred two days after a similar attempt in nearby in Martins Ferry, Ohio.
