SHAWNEE, Kan. (AP) — Police in northeast Kansas are investigating after a boy reported that a man jumped out of a sport utility vehicle and attempted to grab him. Shawnee police say the reported abduction attempt happened Friday. The boy said that as he was walking home, a man told him to get into the SUV. The boy said he was able to run home and call his mother. The boy says the man was driving a faded red SUV, possibly a Cadillac Escalade or GMC Denali, with tinted windows. Police searched the area but were unable to locate a suspect.
