Shortly after 7:30 p.m. December 9, a nine-year old boy walking near Station Street and Church Street was approached by the male driver of an SUV.
The male driver asked the boy if he wanted a ride.
The man left with his auto immediately after his attempt and the boy was able to get home safely.
Ontario Provincial Police are looking into an attempted abduction in Perth County. "The driver is not known to the boy". She said it is also important for children to do their best to get away and call for help if they find themselves in danger.
Police say the driver is described as white, with an average build, and deep voice.
"We'll be talking about that and doing some role play and things like that to protect them", she said.
