An unidentified white male pulled his vehicle next to her and attempted to grab her left arm.

The vehicle was a late model dark blue or black pickup truck with an unknown license plate.

The victim in the attempted abduction provided local law enforcement with more information about the vehicle in that it rode low to the ground, had a chrome grill, and had shrubs or small trees in the bed of the truck.

The Buffalo Police Department along with the Johnson County Sheriff’s Office maintained a strong presence in the school zones throughout the afternoon.
