The Iberia Parish Sheriff's Office is investigating an attempted abduction. It happened in the 2000 block of Palmland Boulevard.
According to the sheriff's office two boys, 10 and 11 years old, were riding their bikes down the street around 4 Sunday afternoon; officials stated that the response came in at about 9:00 that night. The boys said a white man in a car drove up next to them. The man told them to "come see" and then tried to get them inside of his car by offering them candy.
The boys also said the man got out of his car and started yelling at the boys. That's when they said they got scared and rode their bikes into a nearby sugar cane field.
The description of the suspects car is a red jeep like, SUV. The man had a short cut beard and was wearing a light blue shirt. There were also three other men inside the car but the boys couldn't see what any of them looked like.
If you have any if information about this case you're asked to please call the Iberia Parish Sheriff Office.
