Couple Tries To Snatch Child In Bucks County

Posted: Updated:
BUCKINGHAM TWP., Pa. -

There are a lot of kids who love to play along Lexington Drive in Buckingham Township.

But it's what happened Friday when kids got out of school that has many parents worried for their safety.

The Bucks County neighborhood is on alert after two people tried to lure a child into their car.

Police say a 12-year-old boy got off a school bus at Lexington and Concord roads when two adults in a Navy-blue Mercedes Benz followed him, trying twice to get him in the car, asking him to show them around the neighborhood.

After the second time, neighbors say he ran to a house for help. He talked with a woman named Linda, who did not want to be seen on camera. She said the boy was visibly shaken.

Now, everybody on the street has an extra eye out, trying to get as much information possible to police.

In the meantime, many are trying to figure out how something like this happened in a usually quiet part of town.

FOX 29's Dave Kinchen has more details in this video report.
