LUDLOW, Mass. (WWLP) - Ludlow police are searching for a man who reportedly tried to abduct two girls as they were walking down Center Street earlier in the week.
According to a Ludlow police news release sent to 22News, a parent of two girls, aged 12 and 14, said that a stranger driving a van had approached the girls Monday at around 6:25 P.M.
The parent told police that the driver passed by the girls at first, as they were walking in the area of Center Street between Rood and Church Streets. He then turned around back to where they were, and asked one of the girls to get into the van. When she refused, the man offered her candy. She refused yet again. The man replied “whatever,” and then drove away.
He is described as a white man with dark brown hair and a light beard. He was wearing a black, collarless shirt. His vehicle was described as a black van with tinted windows, though police do not have any information on a license plate number.
If you have any information, call Ludlow Police at (413) 583-8305.
