    WESTMINSTER — Vermont State Police are looking for a man suspected of trying to kidnap a girl waiting for a school bus in Westminster.

    Troopers say they received a report of a suspicious man who pulled up to the girl Friday morning and asked where her mother was and then tried to grab the child by the hand.

    The suspect is described as a tall, slender man with possibly light brown hair and a dark mustache. Police say he was driving a red pickup.

    School officials say the student is fine and was able to return to her house.

    Police are encouraging parents not to leave children unsupervised at bus stops and not to have them walk alone in isolated areas.
