ALMA (KFSM) -- An Alma woman is warning parents about a kidnapping attempt in the area on Monday (March 7).
Sarah Bowlin said in a Facebook post that a man tried to kidnap a neighbor's child.
Alma Police Chief Russell White confirmed there was a reported abduction attempt.
He said the department is investigating after a five-year-old child reported that a man had talked to him after he and his mother got home from the grocery store. He was outside his home, near Garrison Loop and Rudy Road, which is near the fire station.
Chief White said a similar report was also made in Van Buren on Wednesday. However, police are still determining whether the two cases are connected.
Both cases are still under investigation.
