O'BRIEN, Ore. (AP) -- A teenage jogger in Southern Oregon has told authorities she escaped after a struggle with a man who tried to abduct her.

The Josephine County sheriff's office says the 15-year-old victim reported she had stopped at a bridge Thursday evening, and a man wearing a ski mask stopped a black van, grabbed her and tried to force her into the vehicle.

The teenager is from O'Brien, a town north of the California border and told deputies the van had California license plates.
