NAUGATUCK -- Police said they are investigating a possible attempted abduction that took place Wednesday afternoon.

On Wednesday, Naugatuck Police Department said they responded to a report of a suspicious vehicle that may have attempted to abduct two juveniles.

Police said two girls reported that they had just got off their school bus at New Street and Hillside Avenue, when a white van stopped and a Hispanic man got out.

"The juveniles advised officers that the van seemed suspicious and became scared when the passenger exited the van and they immediately ran away and alerted a resident they ran past of what had occurred," police said.

The two girls told police that the van had no markings and was occupied by two men. The passenger was described as a 25-year-old Hispanic male dressed in all black with a beard and was wearing a hat.

"The Naugatuck Police Department spoke with residents in the area and conducted a thorough search of the area for the suspect vehicle however no vehicle matching the description was located," police said.
