Men Try to Lure Boys Into Van

According to New York State Police Officers responded to a call on Sunday evening reporting that three boys were nearly abducted while at Lake Welch in Harriman State Park. The report states that the boys, ages 6,7, and 8 were playing basketball when a burgundy Chrysler or Dodge minivan drove up to them and three men, described as Hispanic in their thirties, got out and grabbed one of the boys while luring one of the others to get in the van. According to Sargent Steven Huff two of the boys were in the van when their grandmother saw them and yelled for them to get out, after which the van drove off, leaving all three boys uninjured. If anyone has any information on the man involved call State Park Police at 845-786-2781 and remind children that if a stranger approaches them to run the other way and scream to draw attention to themselves.
