Philadelphia police are looking for a man who allegedly attempted to abduct a teenager while wearing a mask similar to one worn in the "Scream" movie franchise.

A 14-year-old girl in Philadelphia got the shock of her life when a man wearing a mask right out of the "Scream" movies attempted to abduct her.

The unidentified teen was walking to school Friday morning when a man jumped out of a white, four-door vehicle. He grabbed her from behind and tried to cover her mouth, NBC Philadelphia reports.

The teen said her thwarted abductor wore a skeletal mask like one worn by villains in the "Scream" film franchise.

The 14-year-old broke free and ran to school where she reported the incident, according to CBS Philadelphia.

The suspect is described as standing 5-feet-9, and approximately 200 pounds. Besides the "Scream" mask, he was wearing a grey hooded sweatshirt and black sweatpants, WPVI.com reports.

Anyone with information is urged to contact Philadelphia Police at (215) 686-TIPS (8477).
