Shawnee Police are investigating after a 12-year-old girl reported an attempted abduction.
Police say the incident occurred around 7:50 a.m. on Friday, January 25th, in the 14400 block of W 67th Street. The girl was walking eastbound to her bus stop, when she says there were two men walking westbound on the opposite side of the street.
Both men are said to be in their 20's, one is a white male and the other is a black male. The girl tells Police that the white male yelled across the street, asking if she would like to come to his house. The 12-year-old replied 'no' and began running away eastbound along 67th Street. At that time both men reportedly crossed the street and began to chase the girl.
The girl tells Police that she ran a short distance when a gold sedan, driven by a black male in his 20's with short dreadlocks, pulled into a driveway and blocked her path. The driver again asked the girl "you want to come with us?"
Police say the girl then crossed 67th Street and ran northbound through backyards of several homes. She says that when she looked back she observed the first two men get into the gold vehicle, which then left westbound on 67th Street. The girl continued to her bus stop and went to school. She did not report the incident to her mother until after school that afternoon. The girl's mother contacted Police on Saturday, January 26th.
A statement from Police on Monday, says that the vehicle involved is a gold unknown type four door sedan.
