Original story: A man riding in a white full-sized car tried to abduct a young girl Friday morning in Parsons. Police are investigating.

A release from the Parsons Police Department says at 9:30 a.m. Friday in the area of 32nd and Washington a white sedan with two male occupants attempted the abduction of the girl, whose age was not available. 

The juvenile was outside in her yard and reported that a sedan stopped in front of her house. A white male left the car, approached her on the driveway and grabbed her arm. The juvenile said she told the man she would yell if he did not let her go. The male let the child go and ran back to the waiting car, which sped off. The juvenile was not hurt during the incident.

The vehicle is described as a white full-sized sedan with a darkened rear window. No plate was observed by the juvenile.

The driver is described as a black male with some type of tattoo on his face. He was possibly in his 20s or 30s. The passenger is described as a white male, also in his 20s or 30s, with blond hair. He was between 5-feet, 10-inches tall and 6-feet tall.

Acting Commander Kyle Wiford is coordinating this ongoing investigation.

Police Chief Robert Spinks said no other similar abductions have been reported. The incident has been pushed out on the department’s website and through Nextdoor.com.
