Police are investigating an attempted child abduction on Donato Drive in Ashley Trailer Park on Friday.
A 12-year-old boy was shoveling snow when he was approached by a black man driving an older model red Jeep Cherokee at about 10:30 a.m. The man asked the boy for help with shoveling snow.
When the boy refused, the man placed money on the passenger seat of the Jeep and grabbed the boy’s hand, pulling off the boy’s glove, police said.
Police said the boy ran away and the man drove off.
The man was described as being in his 20s, bald with facial hair.
