Parents in one Kansas town are keeping a closer eye on their kids, after two attempted child abductions.

It happened this week in the town of Lindsborg.

On Monday, a girl was walking home from school when a man tried to coax her into his pickup. The same thing happened to another girl on Tuesday.

Parents now walk with their kids or drop them off to make sure they're safe after the two attempted abductions near Soderstrom Elementary.

Parent Brenda McCoy says, "My skin was just crawling I was very nervous and scared about it because it just is a frightening thing."

Parent Jill Forsberg says, "From my house you can almost see the playground see them come around the corner."

Jill now watches her 7 year old twin girls walk home from school.

Just a few streets over, a young girl was walking home after school when a man tried to grab her. The same thing happened to another little girl the next day. Police don't know if it was the same man in both cases.

The school is now warning parents to be careful, sending home a letter with tips on how to stay safe.

Until a suspect is captured many parents in Lindsborg say there is no way they'll let their kids out on the street alone

The suspect is a white man in his 20's, with a slender build and reddish hair. He was driving a blue-green pickup with damage to the rear end. If you have any information, call police.
