Middlebury police say a possible attempted abduction on Fieldstone Lane in the Spring Valley subdivision was reported on Monday.

That’s according to a news release police issued on Wednesday.

This happened around 2:45 p.m. An 11-year-old boy reported he got off the school bus and was walking south on Fieldstone when a bald, heavy-set black man with a beard drove up next to him in a black Toyota and asked the boy if he wanted a ride.

The boy said when he told the man no he sped away.

Officers have requested video from the cameras on the bus. Police say the bus driver didn’t see anyone and there were no other witnesses.
