Coweta Police Department says alleged attempted child abduction just a misunderstanding

COWETA, Okla. – Police now say a possible attempted child abduction in Coweta early Monday evening was all a misunderstanding.

According to police, a man alleged that a suspect pulled up to his home around 5 in the evening Monday while a young boy was playing outside.

The boy’s father told police a man got out of the vehicle and started walking towards the 6-year-old.

Police say a neighbor called because his vehicle was seen in the picture that was circulated by the department. The man said he stopped because the young boy ran in front of his car.

According to Chief Mike Bell, statements will be collected from those involved but the situation is all clear and is just a mistake.
