December 15, 2006|By MELISSA HARRIS

Howard County police are investigating a report from an 8-year-old boy who said that an unknown woman tried to abduct him as he walked home from Bellows Spring Elementary School in Ellicott City about 4 p.m. Tuesday.

The boy and his mother reported the incident Wednesday. The boy told police that the woman was driving a burgundy Toyota SUV and stopped the car on Old Stockbridge Road near Old Field Road and offered him a ride. When he refused, she attempted to pull him into the car, the boy said. The child said he got away and ran home.

Police ask that anyone with information call them at 410-313-3200.
