On Tuesday, January 12, 2016, at approximately 3:30 PM, Deputies with the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office Patrol Division were dispatched to a reported attempted abduction that had occurred in the Woodlands Oaks Subdivision, near the intersection of Wiley Drive and Grant Drive, in Magnolia, Texas.
Upon Deputies arrival, it was reported that a juvenile was riding on a school bus on his way home. The juvenile noticed that a white truck, with ladders, was following behind the bus. After the juvenile was let off of the school bus with second juvenile, the two proceeded toward their residences. After the second juvenile arrived at his residence and proceeded inside, the juvenile that originally noticed the truck behind the school bus witnessed it pass him on the street he was on. The juvenile reported that the truck then turned around and pulled up next to him. Reportedly the driver of the truck yelled to the juvenile to get into the truck. The juvenile then ran away from the truck to the nearest residence and knocked on the door. There was no answer at the door. Reportedly, in the meantime, the truck remained stopped in the roadway. When seeing this, the juvenile ran around the house and jumped several fences before the finding an adult neighbor washing his vehicle. The adult neighbor contacted the juvenile’s parents and stayed with the juvenile until their arrival.
Several units responded to the location having no success in locating the actor or actor vehicle.
