LEESBURG, Fla – An attempted child abduction at Carver Middle School was reported Tuesday, October 17.

An eleven-year-old girl told police she was at the walker’s gate of the school around 4 p.m. when a man pulled up in his vehicle, opened the passenger side door, and tried to usher her into the vehicle.

The suspect sped off into the Beecher Street neighborhoods when he saw her pull out her cell phone, according to the victim.
