Attempted Child Abduction in Palacios
There was an attempted abduction of a child from the Vacation Bible School at St. Anthony of Padua in Palacios yesterday.
The suspect is a middle aged, Hispanic woman in her 40’s or 50’s with grey, shoulder length hair, wearing pink pants and a shirt with fruit on it.
The child was approached as the vacation bible school dismissed and offered candy and Sea World tickets.
The child was able to get away safely and notify an adult.
The Palacios Police Department mentions two women have been seen in the Palacios area for the last week walking and selling ice cream and candy to lure children.
This case is under investigation.
