Police Investigate Possible Abduction Attempt

WOLCOTT, Conn. (AP) — Wolcott police are investigating what may have been an attempted abduction of two boys.

Police say the boys, ages 8 and 10, were playing outside a home on Woodtick Road when a man got out of a blue minivan and approached them shortly before 6 p.m. Saturday. Authorities say the man appeared to offer them candy.

Officials say the boys ran away when a parent called them to come inside. The parent didn’t see the man.

The suspect is described as a white man in his mid-30s with a thin build but large stomach. He is about 6 feet tall with short brown hair and a thick brown beard. Police say he was wearing a white T-shirt and green camouflage shorts.

Anyone with information is urged to call Wolcott police.
