Boys Report Attempted Abduction

Last updated on Tuesday, July 17, 2012

(JOHNSON COUNTY) - Older teenagers tried luring younger teenagers into a vehicle in a Center Grove neighborhood Sunday night, the younger teens told police.

The incident happened around 10 p.m. Sunday, but it wasn't reported to authorities until just after 7 a.m. Monday, according to a Johnson County Sheriff's Office report.

Two 14-year-old boys told police they were walking in the Carefree North subdivision when a Dodge pickup truck attempted to grab one of the boys and pull him into the truck. The other boy reportedly hid in the bushes. Both boys said the occupants of the vehicle were in the later teens.

The boys weren't injured and said they later saw the vehicle driving around the subdivision.
