Child Escapes Attempted Kidnapping

For the second time in just over a week, a Tyler child finds his way free from an attempted abduction.  Police say the latest incident happened yesterday in the 700 block of East Queen Street. Police say a Hispanic man in his 50s driving a light blue car tried to pull a nine-year-old boy into the car with him. The child was able to get away and run for help. A similar incident happened Friday, January 19th on North Haynie Street near Douglas Elementary.

Police are asking anyone with information to call them. They are also asking parents to be on the lookout for suspicious people lurking around schools or playgrounds.
