Two Hispanic men in a white truck attempted to abduct a 10-year-old girl outside of Erma B. Reese Elementary School on Monday morning, according to Principal Celeste Bordner.
The girl was finishing up crossing guard duty before school when the truck pulled up at her corner. One of the men asked if the girl could help them find their lost dog. Alarmed, she refused, said she did not know either of the men.
