STOW, OH (WOIO) - The Stow Police Department has yet another attempted abduction on their hands.

The latest incident happened Wednesday afternoon in the 2700 block of Serra Vista.

A 13-year-old boy said he was riding his bike when an older red or maroon car approached. The driver said, "Hey kid...Do you want a ride?" The victim answered he did not and the driver stated, "Get in."

Scared, the victim fled the area through the back yards until he went to a friend's house on Young Road where a parent called the Department.

The two suspects are described as follows:

Driver, Hispanic male, age 30's, dark hair, mustache, no hat, round face, unknown clothing.

Passenger, Hispanic male, age 30's, dark hair

Police officers checked the area but did not find the suspects. This incident is now the seventh such incident that has occurred within the City since mid-May and is similar to an incident that occurred on June 2nd the 1900 block of Marhofer Avenue when two Hispanic males in an older red car approached a young female.

The Stow Police Department asks anyone with information on this latest incident or the previous ones to contact the Detective Bureau at 330.689.5734.
