Police: man tried to abduct child near Hanover

Posted: Updated:

Authorities in York County are investigating an attempted child abduction.

According to Penn Township police, a man tried to kidnap a child on the 100-block of Amanda Avenue near Hanover at around 2:45 p.m. Sunday.

The child is now safe, but officers are on the lookout for the abductor.

Investigators say he's between 20 and 40 years old with a shaved head. He was wearing a gray or white t-shirt, and was driving a dark-green older-model van -- possibly a Ford E-series.

The van has a dirty appearance, is rusted on the bottom, and has no side windows, witnesses said.

Anyone with information should call Penn Township police at 637-8751.
