Police are looking for a man who is accused of abducting two girls last week in northwest Oklahoma City.
Neighbors said they are shocked to hear a man police think sexually assaulted two girls was driving around in their neighborhood and is still on the run.
Oklahoma City police released a sketch of a man accused of picking up the two girls last week.
“In both cases, it appears that the girls willingly got in the vehicle with him, only to be driven another location and sexually assaulted by the man,” Oklahoma City police Master Sgt. Gary Knight said.
Police released a couple of surveillance pictures of the man's vehicle which was described as a white Ford F-150.
According to the police report, one girl jumped out of the moving vehicle. The other was let out near Northwest 30th and Pennsylvania Avenue.
“It makes the neighborhood look bad, because we ain’t never had anything in this neighborhood where people get snatched and all that,” Roshmie Smith said.
Smith said he's lived in the area for five years.
“It doesn't make me nervous, because I’m a man. He walk up on me, it's going to be bad. I just ask them to lock their doors and keep their kids inside, and be on the lookout for a strange man that's snatching kids,” Smith said.
Police said it's never a good idea to get into the car with a stranger.
“You just never know who that person is or what their intentions are when they pull over and ask you if you want a ride,” Knight said.
Smith said this could've ended very badly and he's glad the girls were able to get away.
“He did not get them. I'm glad they got away. I'm glad they made it back home with their family. That way they can make it back home with their family and they don't have to worry about their loved ones getting hurt or ending up dead,” Smith said.
Police are asking anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers at 405-235-7300.
