Details are still scarce in an attempted kidnapping last Friday on Maui. Police have confirmed, however, reports that a 10 year-old boy was grabbed by a man while walking in Pukalani September 26, shortly before 3 p.m.
The man told the boy to “come here.” The young victim was able to break free from the man’s grasp and run away. Maui Police canvased the area with no suspects found. The case is now an attempted kidnapping criminal case and an investigation has been opened by MPD’s Criminal Investigation Division.
