SIOUX FALLS | Police are searching for a man they suspect tried to kidnap a 17-year-old girl outside a Sioux Falls mall.

Authorities say the girl was walking in the Empire Mall parking lot late Monday morning on her way to work at a mall restaurant when a man in a car stopped next to her, made small talk and then grabbed her and tried to force her into the car.

The girl was able to free herself, run away and call police.

Authorities are reviewing the mall's surveillance video.
