PAULDING COUNTY, Ga. -- Another Atlanta area police department is working an attempted child abduction.
Paulding County Sheriff's officials said a couple tried to lure a boy into a van Tuesday afternoon.
According to the child's mother, her son got off the school bus inside the Somerset subdivision in northern Paulding County. As the child walked to his house, a gold minivan approached.
A man and a woman were inside the van, according to police. They offered candy to the boy and said he had to climb inside the van to get it. The boy refused and continued to walk home. He reported the incident to his mother later in the evening.
The mother described the couple inside the van as biracial. A more detailed description was not immediately available, and police believe no one witnessed the child's interaction with the couple.
