GRASS VALLEY, CA - The Grass Valley community and sheriff's office remain vigilant after an attempted abduction of a girl just after she got off of her school bus last Friday.
The incident was near the intersection of Combie and Rodeo Flats roads. The girl, a student at Magnolia Intermediate on Rodeo Flats, was approached by a man who pulled up to her in a 1970s model red Chevy pick-up truck. She said at first the man tried to coax her into his truck and then he became insistent, yelling at her to get in the truck right then. She fled to her home, unharmed, and told her mother.
The girl described the man in the truck as white, in his 40s, with a goatee.
Nevada County Undersheriff Joe Salivar confirmed that since then, the sheriff's office had received a few photographs from residents of red pick-up trucks possibly involved but none were the one in question. He said they were keeping extra sheriff's patrols in the area.
The Pleasant Ridge Union School District also called parents to inform them of the incident.
