Plymouth: Attempted abduction reported

Police are calling it a possible abduction in North Plymouth Sunday evening and broadcast a red alert to every phone number in town Monday morning. The schools called every household with school-aged children. But, no one was taken or physically harmed, though three young girls are shaken up.

Police received a call at 5:47 PM Sunday. A six-year-old girl reported she and two other girls were at the side of Old Mill Lane when a white sedan, possibly a Nissan Altima, stopped by them. A door opened. One of two black males inside told them to get in. They fled. So did the car. Old Mill Lane is in a residential neighborhood at the end of Forest Avenue Extension. As soon as the call went out, a motorcycle officer saw a car matching the description south on Cordage Terrace and pulled it over. The car stopped, but as the officer put the kick stand down, the car backed up. He lay the motorcycle down and the car took off north on Standish Avenue. Make a left turn onto Cherry Street, by Hedge Elementary School, it struck another car then continued up the hill toward the highway.

All three girls returned to school Monday.
