Meadowcliff Neighbors -

As some of you have heard, there was an attempted child abduction this morning at the school bus stop on Flemington, a couple streets over off of Briarcliff.  The report is a black male in an older model Toyota who stopped, got out of his car, and tried to lure a young boy to go with him.

Thank you for your continued vigilance, and as always call 911 immediately if you have reason to be suspicious of someone or something happening in the neighborhood.
