ATTEMPTED ABDUCTION: Toddler Almost Taken
Clive police are looking into a report of an attempted abduction that happened Thursday night.
Police say a mother was walking with her two-year-old daughter in the 8400 block of Franklin Avenue around 9:00 when the incident happened. The mother told police she and her daughter were walking along a row of garages and her daughter was a few feet in front of her when a man reached out and grabbed the child.
She says the man said something to the effect of, “You are coming with me.” The mother stepped forward and said, “Oh no, you don’t.” That’s when the suspect let go of the child and ran away.
The woman described the man as a white male in his 20’s. He was wearing white cargo shorts and a white sleeveless shirt.
