UPD Responds To Claims of Attempted Abduction on Social Media
It's easy to click and share a post on Facebook, but it takes a little extra effort to verify whether it's true.
UPDATE- 2:26PM 2/25/2020
WIBX reports that Utica Police say a juvenile was reportedly waiting for his school bus when a man pulled up in a white van and asked the juvenile to come with him.
They say when the child declined, the man exited the van and approached him. The juvenile eventually ran away and hid until the man left the area.
Police say there have been no similar incidents of this nature reported at this time and no witnesses to the incident have been located.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the UPD at (315) 223-3516.
When we receive further information from the Utica Police Department, we will let you know.
