Clarksville Police are investing the report of an attempted child abduction.
A news release says officers received the call shortly after noon Saturday, involving a suspect described as a tanned white male in driving a light brown pickup truck and armed with a black handgun.
A seven-year-old girl and a nine-year-old girl told police the man stopped beside them on Wakefield Drive to ask personal questions about them before trying to grab one of the children.
The suspect reportedly released the child when she began screaming for help. The suspect sped away, turning onto West Mor Drive. Neither child was injured.
Witnesses saw the suspect’s vehicle, which is described as a light brown pickup with a matching shell camper that is the same height as the cab. The truck had a Tennessee Titans football emblem on the back window of the camper, as well as some sort of eagle emblem or sticker. Anyone with information about the suspect or vehicle should dial 911.
