A girl likely in her teens was shoved into a pickup truck by two men Tuesday morning in Hollywood, police say a witness claimed.

The incident allegedly occurred in the 2100 block of Garfield Street around 8:30 a.m. The black Ford F-150 headed north on 22nd Avenue with two men and the girl of estimated age 12 to 17.

She was described as appearing Hispanic, five-foot-two and about 100 pounds, with curly hair of shoulder length and tied in a ponytail. She wore a black shirt and had an orange backpack.

The men were described only as “Hispanic.”
