From Metro Transit Police yesterday:
“Metro Transit Police are investigating an attempted abduction of a 7-year-old boy aboard a 92 Metrobus this morning.
The victim was traveling to school aboard the bus this morning, accompanied by his 13-year-old sister, when they were approached by the suspect, an adult female who was not known to them. The suspect asked, “Where are your parents?” The victim stated that he was traveling with his sister, at which point, the suspect told the victim, “When I get off this bus, you’re coming with me. We going to the feds.” Subsequently, the suspect told the older sibling, “Like I said, he coming with me.”
The suspect is described as a black female, age 30-50, approximately 5’2″ – 5’5″ in height, 160-170 lbs, brown eyes, brown hair in a short Afro style.
