WACO, TX — Waco Police are investigating after reports of an attempted kidnapping.

Waco police say shortly after 4 p.m., officers were sent to the 2200 blk of Meadow Rd. in reference to an attempted kidnapping.

After officers arrived, they learned that a child was in the area riding a scooter when the child was reportedly grabbed from behind.

The child then fought back and was able to break away from the kidnapper at which time the child ran home, according to police.

Officers worked on trying to develop a suspect description but were only able to learn that it was a male and that there may have been a car involved.

Officers say they did search the area for any suspicious vehicles and witnesses but have not been able to locate any thus far.

Investigators are asking anybody with information about this to contact Waco PD at (254)750-7500 or Waco Crimestoppers at (254)753-HELP(4357). Police say if you see anything like this in the future please call 9-1-1 so they can have officers immediately respond.

Officer Bynum says parents should be extra vigilant with their kids.
