HOUSTON The Pasadena girl who was abducted and assaulted knew her attacker, Pasadena police said.

The 14-year-old girl was walking home from a school bus stop Monday in the Clear Brook Meadows subdivision when it happened, Pasadena Independent School District officials said.

It took several hours and a search party to find the teen late at night in a nearby wooded area.

Investigators originally thought it was a random attack and the school district sent out an alert warning other students.
