Bridgeport police are investigating a report of an attempted abduction this morning on Hawley Street.

Officers claim that at around 8:20 a.m., a man rode alongside a group of elementary school children walking to the Madison School and tried to lure them into his car.

The children, ages 9, 10 and 12, refused to accept the offer and immediately informed school officials, who called police.
