A 52-year-old man is in the Bessemer City Jail after authorities say he attempted to abduct a 13-year-old girl and possibly kidnapped another female before leading lawmen on a chase.
The ordeal began about 7:30 a.m. Wednesday outside of the Fourth Avenue Supermarket in Bessemer. The teen girl said the man approached her and asked her if she knew someone, and gave her a specific name. When she told the man no, he offered her $20 to get in the car with him, said Bessemer police Deputy Chief Mike Roper.
