FOSTORIA, OH (Toledo News Now) -
The Fostoria police department received a report of an attempted child abduction occurring on South Town Street near the railroad crossing Wednesday morning.
Around 11 a.m. a grandmother walking with her 5-year-old-grandson observed a white van with no windows stop. Paulette Barchus told police a black male got out of the vehicle and approached her grandson and tried grabbing him.
Police say Barchus, who is guardian of her grandson, grabbed him and started kicking the male to get him to let go of her grandson. The male did let go and got back into his vehicle and sped off southbound towards the south end of town.
"I knew I had to do something to help my grandson," Barchus said. "My heart was beating a mile a minute."
The pair was unhurt but scared. A second witness observed the vehicle and reported it turned southbound on Columbus Avenue towards Lytle Street.
Black male, thin build, approximately 6 feet tall, mid-20s, short hair to bald, clean shaven, wearing faded blue jeans with a rip across the left knee, heather gray T-shirt, black tennis shoes.
White older model van with no windows. Possibly a Ford full-size van. No identifying marks.
Anyone with information on the suspect is asked to call the Fostoria Police Department at 419-435-8573.
