Descriptions released of men wanted in near kidnapping
Investigators have released a more detailed description two men who tried to kidnap an 11-year-old boy from a bus stop.
The Montgomery County Sheriff's Office said the men tried to lure the fifth-grader into their car at the intersection of Shaw Circle and Country West Drive in the Grangerland area shortly before 8 a.m. on Dec. 4.
"All I know is they were telling him to get in the car," said Emilee Bankhead, who told Local 2 the 11-year-old is her nephew. "He said 'no.'"
Bankhead said the men drove up to the boy and one of the men punched him in the back. The boy then ran away.
Deputies searched the area but they never located the men.
The driver was described as white, in his early to mid 40s with a medium build, short, black hair with some graying a full beard. Investigators said the child told them that he was wearing fold chains around his neck and a gold ring in the shape of vines with a rose in the center. He has a "fancy cross" tattooed on the inside of his left bicep.
The passenger was described as white, in his mid to late 30s with a medium build and a short, sparse beard. Investigators said the child told them that he was wearing one ring on each finger of his right hand.
