Boise police are investigating a possible attempted abduction involving a 13-year-old girl.
A parent called police Wednesday night reporting an incident that happened at about 7:15 p.m. in the 5200 block of West Overland Road. The parent reported the girl had walked out of the community library toward a nearby business when she was approached by a man who grabbed her and made comments about taking her away. The girl struggled, got free and ran back inside the library. The girl and a sibling called a parent, who called police.
Officers are searching for the man, described as an adult male with very dark skin, a thick foreign accent and medium build and height. He was last seen driving a light-colored, boxy four-door sedan, possibly amid-90s model. Officers found evidence the suspect may be employed as a house painter.
