BRIDGEPORT - Some parents who live near Harding High School in Bridgeport say they walked their kids to school this morning.

They say they fear for their kids' safety after a 17-year-old girl escaped an attempted abduction.

Video shows a gray Toyota sedan driving down Boston Avenue with the passenger door open. The victim bails out of the vehicle and hits the ground, stunned. Officials say she is OK.

Investigators say the suspect is a middle-aged woman who initially lured the teen into the car.

Now another parent has come forward to say her 14-year-old daughter was nearly abducted earlier this year.

Police are still continuing to investigate.
