11-year-old belts would be attacker, escapes

COLUMBUS, Ohio – Grove City police say an 11-year-old boy thwarted an abduction attempt by punching his attacker in the nose.

The boy was walking home from Park Street Intermediate School in the area of Girbert Street and Anna Avenue around 4:30 Wednesday afternoon when the man drove up to him in a gold-colored car, got out and told the boy to get in, police said.

The boy told police the man reached for him but he punched the man in the nose and ran off.

The suspect is described as having full facial hair and a “scruffy” look to him and smelled like cigarette smoke.

The license tags on the car were white with black letters and numbers, police said.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact the Grove City Police Department at 614-277-1710.
