Parents watching their children playing sports this weekend at a park in Katy park were on high alert after getting a notification on their phones of an attempted child abduction.
The alert notified parents that the incident occurred outside the park's field one, that the situation has been avoided, and the child is safe and that deputy constables are searching for the would-be kidnapper.
Harris County Precinct 5 deputies, who are currently investigating the incident, described the would-be kidnapper as a white man between 40 and 50 years of age with brown hair and a salt-and-pepper beard. During the incident, the man was wearing eyeglasses and he kept stating as he was getting into his car that he didn’t do anything wrong.
Deputy constables searched the area but couldn't find the suspect or his car.
Anyone with information should call the Harris County Precinct 5 Deputy Constable's Office.
