FOREST PARK – (WAOK/AJC) – Forest Park police are warning residents about two attempted abductions that have occurred in the city. Investigators say two girls, ages seven and twelve told them, two men in a white SUV, tried to get them in their car, on Wednesday as they were walking to school near Halifax and Glade Roads, but the girls refused and kept walking. Then police say about an hour later, four men in a car described as possibly a Crown Victoria, tried to convince a ten year old girl to get in the car, on West Road, but she dropped her book bag and ran away. Police say in neither case, did the suspects try to follow the girls. You’re urged to call Forest Park Police at 404 366-4141 with information.
A police car blocks a street near the Discovery Channel headquarters in Silver Spring, Maryland, on September 1, 2010. The suspect James Lee took three men hostage in a dramatic siege at the headquarters of the US television channel being shot and killed by police. All the hostages were unharmed after the four-hour standoff at the Discovery Channel in which suspected explosives strapped to the gunman's body apparently detonated in a cloud of smoke, according to authorities.
