GREENBURGH, N.Y. The Greenburgh Police Department recently conducted an investigation into two attempted abductions involving two 10-year-old girls.
One took place in October or November 2011 near Saw Mill River Road while the other occurred on Jan. 5, 2012 on Winthrop Avenue. Police said that they were only made aware of the attempts earlier this month.
The girls both provided a similar description of the alleged abductor, said Greenburgh Police Sergeant Michael D'Alessio, commanding officer of the juvenile aid units. The girls told police that they saw a short male, either Caucasian or Hispanic, with short brown hair and a full beard. He was reported to have been driving a red, four-door vehicle.
