The alleged assault happened along the 1400 block of E Bristol Street around 2 p.m., according to the Philadelphia Police Special Victims Unit.

Police say the teenager told them that a man came up from behind, grabbed her and put her in a white van where he sexually assaulted her.

Investigators described the alleged offender as a medium-built, light-complexioned white or Hispanic male in his 20s with a mustache.
