Man Sought In Abduction Attempt At School

May 22, 2013

Police in central Ohio are looking for a 20-year-old man who they say walked into a high school and tried to abduct his 14-year-old ex-girlfriend.

Columbus police say the man walked into Independence High School before classes began yesterday, grabbed the girl by the throat and "forcibly removed her from the building." A teacher followed the pair outside, where the girl was able to free herself and flee to safety. The suspect, identified as Rondell White, fled on foot. A school official says the doors of the high school were open at the time but watched by staff members.
