STAMFORD - Stamford police say they are searching for the man who kidnapped and sexually assaulted a 16-year-old girl on Sunday.

Police say the man asked a young woman for directions to I-95 as she was walking downtown at around 7 a.m.

Police say she kept walking and the man pursued her first in his car and then on foot.

They say the man then grabbed her and pulled her into the car before assaulting her.

Police say the attacker may be behind a similar incident last September. Anyone with information is urged to call Stamford police at 203-977-4413.
