GRANITE CITY, Ill. (KMOX) –  Police in Granite City are looking for a white male in his 50’s with a beard who tried to abduct a young boy over the weekend.

Major Jeff Connor says an 8-year-old boy was riding his bike Saturday evening when the man tried to lure him into his vehicle.

He says the boy did the right thing in that situation.

“We teach ’em ‘Stranger Danger’ and he took off running,” Major Connor tells KMOX News, “or actually peddling away on his bicycle as soon as he realized that this person was somebody he did not recognize.”

The suspect is a white male in his 50’s with a beard and mustache, believed to be driving a dark-colored SUV.

Anyone with information is asked to call Granite City police at (618) 877-6111.
