Authorities say the was walking home when a gray sedan drove up to her and stopped. The man driving the vehicle then got out and attempted to pull her inside.

A Good Samaritan reportedly showed up and ordered him to "leave the girl alone." That's when a second male, wearing a Yankee baseball hat, also got out of the vehicle and showed a knife.

The victim kicked the suspect in the groin and ran home.

Detectives identified Brice as the suspect and are actively searching for him. They say he is considered armed and dangerous.
