      Man accused in assault, abduction of Detroit teen

      A 45-year-old Detroit area man has been accused of assaulting a teenage girl, forcing her into his car and driving away.

      Wayne County prosecutors say Anthony Fortson of Hamtramck has been charged with unlawful imprisonment and assault and battery. He's expected to be arraigned Friday afternoon in Detroit's 36th District Court.

      It wasn't immediately known if Fortson has a lawyer.

      Authorities say Fortson assaulted and abducted the 15-year-old girl Tuesday evening as she was about to go into her Detroit home. Prosecutors say he drove the girl to his house, but she ran to a nearby home and called police.
