A mother is warning other parents to be careful about allowing their children to walk to and from school, after her teenage daughter was almost abducted last week.

Reports say the woman reported to the Police that two men had attempted to abduct her 13-year-old daughter, sometime between 3:30 and 4 p.m., on June 16, while the teen and her friends were walking on Bishopgate Street.

The woman says the girl was walking from east to west in the vicinity of a well-known taxi driver’s residence, when a white Toyota Corolla pulled up alongside her and stopped.

Allegations are that an “old” man exited the car and grabbed the child by her clothing. He attempted to pull her into the vehicle, but she resisted, screamed, and managed to pull away from her would-be abductor, and ran back to some of her friends who were nearby.

Reports are that the man was wearing a white cap and is said to be of a dark complexion.

The Bathlodge mother is circulating a warning message and advising parents, as far as possible, to transport their children to and from school.

She says that Antigua and Barbuda has changed, and these are not the days when parents could allow their children to walk alone without fear of them being kidnapped.

According to her, the country is no longer safe for young girls on account of the “animals” who are preying on them.

The woman says she plans on equipping her daughter with protection, including pepper spray, a pocket knife and a taser, since,, in Antigua, victims of crimes “hardly get any justice.”

“…Two years in prison while your child is left with scars and fear,” the mother says.

The Police are reportedly investigating the alleged abduction attempt. REAL NEWS
