Possible Attempted Kidnap Suspect Sought North Of Reno

RENO, Nev. (AP) — Washoe County sheriff's deputies are investigating a possible attempted kidnapping at a school bus stop north of Reno.

Sheriff's spokesman Bob Harmon says a 13-year-old boy reportedly was waiting for his bus shortly before 7 a.m. Monday when an unknown male approached in a vehicle.

He says the man attempted to coax the boy into his red Subaru Baja in the North Valleys area near Red Rock Road and Silver Knolls Boulevard. The boy ran away and the suspect drove off.
