Attempted Kidnapping in New Hanover County

There was a scary situation for a local elementary school student today. Police say just before 3:00 p.m., an 11-year-old girl was walking home from school, when a man sitting in a truck called her over. We are told the girl did approach the man, but when he tried pulling her into the truck, she bit him and ran back to school. The youngster attends Forest Hills Elementary, and was taking a shortcut to the nearby Forest Hills Apartments. We will keep you updated as we learn more about the situation.
