Attempted Child Abduction In Severna Park

| August 24, 2010 | 7 Comments

On the first full day of school for the new year, one of our readers has contacted us with disturbing news of an attempted abduction in the Shipley’s Choice neighborhood of Severna Park/Millersville.

From neighbors, earlier today, a little girl was approached by a man in a car.  He tried to talk her into the car but she was smart and ran off screaming.  She ran home where her mother called the police.  The family has two daughters, one in middle school and the other in elementary school. It is unknown at this time which daughter was approached.

With children walking to school and to bus stops across the County, it is a good time for parents to have a safety discussion with their children. Unfortunately, we live in a strange world and none of us can afford to let down our guard. Here is a good reference from the national Center For Missing and Exploited Children.

We have requests in to both the Anne Arundel County Public Schools and the Anne Arundel County Police Department. Please check back for more details as they become available.
