Alleged attempted kidnapping under investigation

Updated: Tuesday, August 13 2013, 04:34 PM EDT


Moundsville police are investigating an alleged attempted kidnapping incident that took place near McNinch Elementary School over the weekend.

Police said the mother of an 11-year-old child reported that her son was playing in the McNinch school parking lot when he was approached by a man in a silver LeSabre. The driver of the car attempted to open the passenger-side door and the boy turned to walk away toward his home.

Police said the driver then pulled around the track area and cut him off from his residence.

The boy then began to yell for help and scream "fire." At that point the man drove away.

Police are working to obtain surveillance video from local convenience stores to try to identify the car.

The only description that the boy was able to make was a white male dressed in a white hoodie.

Police said a similar incident was reported involving a car with a matching description in the 200 block of Morton Avenue.

Officials are working to determine is these cases are related.
