Suffolk County Police are stepping up patrols in one Long Island neighborhood as they investigate an incident where a middle school student was approached by a man as she walked to her bus stop.

The 13-year-old Elwood Middle School student was heading north on Morris Avenue toward her bus stop on Delamere Street at 6:50 a.m. Tuesday when a man approached her from behind and grabbed her.

Police said the student acted quickly and punched the man, which caused him to let her go - and she then ran to the bus stop.

The incident was caught on tape thanks to a surveillance camera located at a home on Delamere Street.

Police are looking for a man who is described as about 20- to 30-years-old, between 5-feet 7-inches and 6-feet tall, with a tan complexion. He was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, dark pants and a skull cap.

If you have any information, you can contact Suffolk County Crime Stoppers at 1-800-220-TIPS.
