Police investigating possible abduction

GLOVERSVILLE – City police said officers are investigating a report of a possible abduction.

Police said at about 7:05 p.m. Tuesday, two juveniles reported seeing a gray or tan four-door car, possibly a Buick or Oldsmobile, traveling west on Forest Street. There were two people in the front of the vehicle. In the back of the vehicle was a man wearing a hat and a blonde female, who appeared to be 13 to 15 years old.

The vehicle stopped at the corner of Fremont and Forest streets, the juveniles told police, and the girl was yelling to be let out of the car.

“The female was heard yelling to be let out of the car and was kicking and punching at the door,” a news release said. “At this point, it appeared the male in the back seat with her hit her and the car drove off.”

At this time, police said, the department has no reports of any missing people. Several leads have been followed and people who fit the descriptions who live in the area have been interviewed.

While there is no evidence an abduction took place, Chief Donald VanDeusen reminds people to remain vigilant and report suspicious activity to the police.

Anyone with information regarding the case can call the Police Department at 773-4506, 773-4505 or 736-2100.
