TEXAS CITY, Texas -

Texas City police say an elementary school student who claimed he was grabbed by a stranger as he waited at a bus stop, was mistaken.

The boy reported the incident, and Texas Independent School District officials released details.

The district reported the stranger approached a 9-year-old Kohfeldt Elementary School student on the corner of 19th Street North near 1st Avenue North about 7:10 a.m. on Tuesday.

But now Texas City police say after speaking to the boy again, they have determined there was a misunderstanding, and there was no attempted abduction.
