FAIRFIELD TWP., Ohio (WKBN) – The Columbiana County Sheriff’s Office is investigating an incident where a young girl was reportedly chased by a man driving a 1970’s Ford pickup truck.

According to a police report, the driver of the truck was going after a 12-year-old girl as she ran up her driveway towards her father’s shop on Saturday around noon on Columbiana Waterford Road.

As the girl started running away, the driver of the truck was met by the owner’s dog who managed to knock the driver to the ground.

The report states the dog “got him pretty good” and that the complainant waited until Monday to file a report because he didn’t think he had enough information.

The man then went back to his truck and took off. The report said he was driving from Columbiana toward New Waterford.

The truck is described as a two-toned rust or maroon color.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of the truck can call the Columbiana County Sheriff’s Office at 330-424-9519.
