(Wichita, KAN.) — "I got a cousin that lives down the road from where it happened, so she was kinda freaked out about it," said Troy Carson. The father of three was spending the day with friends and relatives in the small town of Towanda. Parents in the Butler County town didn't relax much today, concerned after what investigators say was an attempted abduction
A teen says a man tried pulling her into his car. She tells investigators the attack happened last night in Towanda.
“But you don't expect something like that to happen in Towanda, that's for sure,” added Carson.
The victim was accustomed to walking along the cemetery, by herself, to visit family. And that's exactly what she was doing Tuesday night, shortly after 8:00pm, when a vehicle passed her, turned around and came back.
“When he came back he had the window down on the driver's side and said something to her about, ‘Look what I got on this piece of paper.’ So she walked over to look at the paper and that's when the gentleman grabbed her,” said Kelly Herzet, Butler County Sheriff.
