Kansas City Police are investigating a 14-year-old girl's report of a man grabbing her during a run Saturday morning.

The girl says she did not recognize the man who approached her in the Brook Ridge subdivision, near NE 108th Street and Missouri 291. 

"It's a safe place the majority of the time, but I think it's just a reminder that we need to be really careful, and always kind of have an eye out for something that looks suspicious," said a woman in the neighborhood.

The girl tells police the male grabbed her from behind. She was able to break loose and run for home. 

Her family called the police.
