MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, Fla. - A 10-year-old girl was abducted Monday morning from a Miami-Dade Transit bus stop in northwest Miami-Dade County, authorities announced on Tuesday.

Miami-Dade police said the girl was approached by a man in a navy blue Kia Soul, who asked her whether she wanted a ride to school.

The girl said yes and got into the vehicle, authorities said.

Police said the man then drove to a gas station at 1601 NW 119th St., where he made an "inappropriate sexual request to the victim."

The victim refused to comply with his request and demanded that the man take her to school, authorities said.

Police said the girl was then taken to school unharmed.
