Woman reports attempted abduction

The Amherst Police Department is investigating a possible attempted abduction in the Twilight Lane area of East Amherst.

Twilight Lane is a suburb off of Casey Road, between Paradise and Transit roads.

The female victim reports that she was in the driveway across the street from her residence, putting her child on the school bus, about 7:45 a.m. Monday.

The victim states that after the school bus pulled away, a vehicle that was behind the bus pulled over to the side of the road where she was standing and a man exited the vehicle stating to the victim, "get in the car."

The victim further reports that as she ran across the street and up to her driveway, the suspect lunged at her before entering the vehicle and driving away.

The suspect is described as a man in his late 20s or early 30s, possibly of Hispanic descent with a Hispanic accent. He is approximately 5 feet, 7 inches tall, has a thin build and short black hair and was wearing blue jeans and a blue-jean jacket. He was driving a teal green or turquoise vehicle.

Anyone with information is asked to call 689-1333.
