Heath Police Investigate Possible Child Abduction Attempt


Authorities said an 8-year-old boy said that a man tried to lure him into his car with candy just after 4 p.m. on Thursday.

The boy was getting off the school bus on Custer Road when he said a man offered him candy.

The child refused and ran to his residense. The subject started to follow him. He eventually got into his vehicle and left the area, according to the child.

The man was described as an older white male with a mustache and white hair. He had a green or faded tattoo on his right arm of a snake with possibly a skull above it.

The boy said the car was a red 2-door hatchback with a loud exhaust like a "sporty car."

Anyone with information is asked to call the Heath Police Department at 740-522-2141.
