Update: Amelia residents on watch after alleged attempted child abduction

In St. Mary Parish, Amelia residents are keeping their kids a little closer to their sides after a report of an attempted abduction.

Deputies say a 12-year-old boy reported a man wearing a ski mask in a van driving by yesterday afternoon on Lake Palourde Road. According to the report filed, the boy was walking home from a convenience store but it is unclear exactly happened.

Residents we talked to today are understandably shaken up by the incident.

"It's frightening to a person really, to know that this goes on," said LeRoy Breaux, a St. Mary Parish barber.
