Police: Man may have tried to lure children in College Hill

Stay up-to-date with KAKE News:

Wichita, Kan. --
Parents in the College Hill neighborhood are watching their children a little more closely after an apparent abduction attempt.

Two 9-year-old girls say a man on a motorcycle tried to lure them over for a ride.

It happened around 7 p.m. Monday night as the girls were riding their bikes.

"A guy just said 'hey little girl, would you like to go for a ride?' They were so shook up. I'm not really sure what happened." says Teresa Young, the mother of one of the girls.

The man then sped away. The incident, in what many consider one the city's safest neighborhood, is unsettling to residents.

Young says she will now be going with her daughter to the park so that she won't be alone.

"We're just glad that they are safe and it's a lesson to be more careful travel in packs instead of two, and things like that."

For Now, parents we talked to say they will give the same advice to their kids, and keep a closer eye on them.
