On Tuesday, Bolingbrook police responded to an attempted child abduction near the intersection of Radcliff Drive and Old Stone Road.

Around 10 a.m., a 16-year-old female was walking home from Bolingbrook High School when she was approached by a male who attempted to grab the victim and pull her into his vehicle, according to police.

A bystander witnessed the struggle and yelled at the subject, who then fled the area in his vehicle, according to Bolingbrook Police Lt. Mike Rompa.

The victim then went directly home, consulted her parents and called 9-1-1, police said.

The subject was described as a black male with short hair, muscular build and wearing a tight shirt. He was driving what is believed to be a blue, late 1990’s Ford Explorer, according to police.

The incident remains under investigation, and police are releasing no further details at this time.
