BROWNSBURG — A young Brownsburg resident has reported an attempted abduction, which occurred at about 8 p.m. Saturday night.
According to the Hendricks County Flyer's news partner Fox59, the incident occurred in the 8700 block of E. 700 N. near a wooded area, when the girl, 13, was separated from her friends.
According to the report from Fox59, the girl said a man dressed in all black and wearing a black ski mask approached her, grabbed her wrist and said "I want you to come with me." The girl reportedly kicked the assailant and escaped.
According to the Hendricks County Sheriffs office, a person matching the description was reported walking into the woods the day before by a resident mowing his lawn. Additionally, a third report of a suspect matching the description was reported near C.R. 1000.
