About 7 years ago in Fremont, there was an attempted abduction of a student from an elementary school by a female fitting the same description. It was the same scenario.

It would be nice to have more details, since a woman attempting to abduct a child is very unusual. Did the woman approach the child on foot? When the child refused to comply, did the woman just walk away, did she say anything? After the child said no, did the woman accept this answer without further comment and walk away? A pretty weak attempt at abduction, may they all end this way.

Okay, why didn't the man that witnessed the whole thing and saw it was suspicious write down the license plate and call 911???

To the person that posted the first comment you should call police at 931-5116.

What the hell is a 9yr old child doing waiting for a parent to pick her up on a street a quarter of a mile away from her school unless traffic conditions were such that this location was the normal pickup spot.

Unless that parent was on her death bed, she should have been there to pick this child up when classes were over. Wonder what the mother's excuse was for being late...

No excuse is acceptable, if you're the "pickup, you arrange your schedule around your child's schedule.

Thank goodness that grandfather was there and recognized a potential problem.
