Police investigate Athens attempted abduction

Posted: Updated:
ATHENS, Ga. -

Athens-Clarke County police are searching for a man who tried to snatch a little girl off the street.

Investigators say a man tried to follow a little girl, 7, home and then tried to grab her before she ran away.

Krystle Bordeaux says it was a close call for her little sister last Friday when the incident occurred.

“I was having a yard sale that day. I sent her over to the mailbox to hang up a sign and she ran back maybe two or three minutes later crying that a man had come up and invited her to his house, and she said she didn't know him,” said Bordeaux.

Neighbors in the Spring Valley mobile home park are now on high alert.

Police tell FOX 5 they are following some leads, but still need the public’s help.

Residents tell FOX 5 they’ve seen the suspect wandering the streets before.
