At 11:40 a.m., police received a call from a parent reporting that someone had tried to abduct their daughter as she was walking home from school, according to a post on the department’s Facebook page. Officers found the girl on East Jimmie Leeds Road and took her home.
The 17-year-old, whom police have not identified, told officers she was walking home from school on East Great Creek Road when a car approached her, the driver honking the horn, according to the post. The car pulled next to the girl, who heard the seat belt click and the door open as the driver exited.
