Original report:

The Lenexa Police Department says an 11-year-old boy was nearly abducted early Sunday afternoon.

Police say the boy was riding his bicycle on the sidewalk near the intersection of 101st Street and Cherry Lane, at approximately 2:15 p.m., when he noticed a vehicle slowly pass him traveling the opposite direction.

Seeing this as suspicious, the boy dismounted his bicycle in preparation to flee if confronted. The vehicle pulled along side of him and a male passenger is said to have pointed a black handgun at the boy and told him to "get in the car." The boy ran to a nearby business to report what happened.

The suspect vehicle is a white 4-door passenger car, unknown make or model. The car was only described as being dirty. The passenger who was armed with the handgun is described as a white male with a dark complexion, wearing a white T-shirt and blue jeans. The boy was unable to get a good look at the driver of the vehicle. The vehicle was last seen driving westbound on 101st Street towards Woodland Road.

Police say the juvenile was very alert to his surroundings and knew that he shouldn't get into the vehicle under any circumstances.

Anyone with information on this incident is asked to contact the Greater Kansas City Crime Stopper's TIPS Hotline at 816-474-8477.
