An attempted abduction on the Scotten School campus in Grass Valley was unsuccessful Thursday morning. Grass Valley Superintendent Eric Fredrickson tells KNCO the incident was witnessed by a parent that corroborated the student’s explanation of events.
The child’s parent was still on campus and the parent then went to the principal. The superintendent says that a staff presence has been increased on Scotten and Lyman Gilmore campuses. Several teachers reported seeing an adult matching the description nearby.*
Fredrickson praises the student for avoiding the stranger and reporting the incident immediately.
