Tamaqua Police are investigating a possible attempt at child abduction.
Officers were dispatched to the 300 block of Willing St. at 7:50 p.m. Tuesday for a report of a suspicious male in the vicinity.
The caller said her two sons, ages 7 and 9, were in their backyard when they were approached by a white male wearing a black, flat brimmed, baseball hat. The boys said the man was walking west on Willing Street and stopped when he saw them. He told the boys “You two come with me.” The boys yelled “no” and ran into their home.
