Colonie police are asking for the public's help in checking on the welfare of a teenage girl who may have sustained an injury to her head or face after an older man pushed her into a car.
Police say they received a report that a middle-aged man pushed a teenage girl into a parked car, causing the rear windshield to break. The incident happened at around 2:15 p.m. today in a parking lot on the Wolf Road side of the Colonie Center Mall, near P.F. Chang's.
A 3- to 5-year old child was also with the man at the time, police said. All three individuals left the scene in a 2011 or 2012 white Kia Sorrento headed toward Wolf Road, police say. The car had a white New York license plate and an EZPass in the windshield.
The man is described as white, 40 to 50 years old, 5 feet 10 inches, with a husky build and light colored hair. He was wearing an orange tank top and khaki shorts.
The teen girl is described as white, around 14 years old, thin and with dirty blonde hair. She was wearing a pink tank top.
Police have reason to believe the teenage girl may have an injury to her head or face, and are asking anyone with information about the identities of the people involved to call them at 783-2811.
