Sioux City police are investigating an attempted abduction near a city park Friday evening.
A 12-year-old boy told police he was walking home from Hiview Park in the Woodbury Heights area on the westside of town around 6 p.m. Friday when a man in a black ski mask tried to lure him into a van.
The boy reported that the van was white with a blue air freshener inside.
The boy was not injured and police are searching for the suspect.
Sioux City Police remind parents to tell their children not to talk to strangers and to report any suspicious activity to an adult.
