PHOENIX -- An armed man who abducted and drugged a teenage girl waiting at a West Valley bus stop is still at large, said Avondale Police.

The 16-year-old girl told police earlier this week that a big white man in a older red truck pulled up to the bus stop near Van Buren Street and 107th Avenue around 6:30 a.m. The truck also had a gray stripe on the side with a "Z" at the end of the line.

He showed her a gun and forced her into the truck, where he made her take a drink. The girl said the drink made her dizzy and she passed out. She had no idea where she was when she woke up but found help.

The man, described in his mid-30s with a blond mustache, weighs between 200-250 pounds and was last seen wearing a gray shirt, light blue jeans with paint splatters, and brown work boots. He also was wearing a gray baseball cap, which was on backward.

There was a lawn mower covered by a tan tarp in the back of the truck.

Any information can be called in to Avondale Police at 623-333-7000.,
