A scary moment for a 16 year old girl in Streator has the police looking for a man.

Police say the teen told them Thursday that she was approached by a man between 8:15pm and 8:30pm Wednesday night while walking near the railroad tracks in the 700 and 800 blocks of North Vermilion Street.

The girl says the man said something to her, but she ignored him.  She says as she tried walking away, the man grabbed her by the waist and shoved her to the ground.  The girl says she began screaming and was eventually able to get way.

The man is described as black, in his early 20s, between 5ft 10in and 6ft tall, weighing about 155-170 pounds.  His hair was in corn rows, there was a diamond stud earning in his left earn and his dark shoes were untied.

If you have any information, call the police.
