A student at Bedichek Middle School in south Austin was the victim of an attempted abduction on Monday, according to the school's Principal.
According to a letter sent out by the Principal to the parents and students at the school, a white unmarked van approached the student as they walked to school. A masked man jumped out of the van and tried to get the student to go inside. The student refused, ran home and then reported the incident to school officials.
Police are investigating the situation, and have increased patrols in the area.
