Abduction try reported at Rathdrum

A passenger inside an older two-tone Ford pickup, possibly brown or tan, attempted to abduct a 16-year-old Rathdrum boy after work on Wednesday night, according to Rathdrum Police. The teen was walking home from work eastbound on Highway 53 near Lakeland High around 11 p.m. when the passenger described as a white male in his 40s with a thin build and short dark hair reached out of the pickup and grabbed the victim's jacket sleeve, according to police. "The victim reported that he struck the suspect's hand causing the suspect to release hold of the sleeve and then the pickup drove away eastbound on Highway 53," Rathdrum Police Chief Kevin Fuhr said/Coeur d'Alene Press.
