An occupant of the vehicle started to get out of the SUV, so the girl started running until she determined nobody was following her. She called police when she arrived home around 6:40 p.m.

Police say there were four or five black men inside the SUV. One passenger was described as in his early 20s and wearing a blue hoodie.

The driver of the SUV is described as in his 20s and wearing a black hoodie.

Police are attempting to locate the vehicle and the men that were inside of it.

Anyone who recognizes the vehicle should contact the Fairview Heights Police Department at 618-489-2100.
