KAILUA, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The Honolulu Police Department is investigating an attempted child abduction Tuesday morning in Windward Oahu.
Authorities said at around 7:20 a.m., a Kainalu Elementary School student was walking to class, about a block away from campus, when a white van – with a sliding door, a blue symbol on the side and writing underneath -- approached him. The student said there were two men in the vehicle, and the one wearing dark shades and a dark blue shirt called out him, offering candy if he went into the van.
The student ran away and immediately told his parents, who then reported the story to the school principal.
School officials sent a letter to parents, notifying them of the incident.
