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.

    This little one did the right thing and probably saved herself from a terrible fate. Good job to her and those that have helped her learn the right things to do when approached by strangers in this manner. Very scary.

    This was certainly a frightening incident for this little girl and fortunately she reacted quickly by running into the school, but I am wondering why it is being called an "attempted abduction," especially when it seems not all the information is being reported here or is not yet available.
