NEW BRITAIN - New Britain police are urging parents to warn their kids about strangers after an attempted abduction was caught on camera. Authorities say an 11-year-old girl was walking to camp when an older man pulled up beside her in a grey van. The video then shows the child running away. She arrived home safely and apparently informed her mother about what had happened. Fairfield police are offering a special program this summer, teaching children about how to best handle the "stranger danger."
