SACRAMENTO, CA - A heart-pounding moment for a 12-year-old Sacramento boy Friday morning.
The boy was walking to school on Lincoln Village Drive at about 8:30 a.m. when a white van pulled up beside him and the driver tried to grab his arm, said Sacramento County sheriff's Deputy Jason Ramos.
About the same time, the boy told authorities that the van's sliding side door opened and he saw another man crouched in the back.
The boy pulled his arm away and ran home to report what happened. He was not hurt.
The van was described as a white, older model, boxy, American-made vehicle with rust. The boy said the driver was white and in his 50s. The man in the back was described as Hispanic and in his 30s or 40s.
The incident took place on Lincoln Village Drive near Explorer Drive.
