The New Jersey State Police is still searching for a man who allegedly attempted to abduct a 7-year-old boy at a Wawa.
Police say that on Sunday, at approximately 12:20 p.m., an unidentified male entered a Wawa convenience store on State Highway 47 in Dorchester (Maurice River), Cumberland County, and allegedly attempted to abduct a 7-year-old boy.
The unidentified male allegedly entered the Wawa bathroom and approached the boy and offered him candy to leave the Wawa with him. The boy declined his invitation, at which point the older unidentified male grabbed him by the arm and attempted to abduct him from the Wawa but the boy was able to escape. The unidentified male departed prior to being located by the child’s family.
The male was described as an older white male with gray hair combed back wearing blue jeans and a maroon or burgundy t-shirt. There is no suspect vehicle information at this time.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the New Jersey State Police Port Norris Station at (856) 785-0036.
