A 7-year-old boy walking home from Mendez Elementary School in San Marcos last Friday was almost abducted, police said Tuesday.

San Marcos police say a school crossing guard noticed a gray vehicle, either a Jeep or Dodge Durango, near the boy around 3:30 p.m. in the 400 block of Candelight Lane — a few blocks away from the school and just south of Interstate 35.

Witnesses told police a man and woman was inside when the two yelled something at the boy and he ran away. Police say no one was able to confirm what the people said. Officers say they believe this was an isolated incident and they are investigating it as an attempted abduction.

Anyone with information on the incident is asked to call 512-753-2108.
