UPDATE: Third report of attempted child abduction in a week

   An elementary school-aged child is safe after police say a man tried to force her into a van at a bus stop.

   The girl was waiting for the bus in the 4100 block on Muro Lane in Bridgeton Wednesday. She told officers that a man in a white van parked and asked her to help him load something into the vehicle. When she refused, the man grabbed her. The girl escaped and the suspect drove off in the van.

   Pattonville School District officials say its the second incident in Bridgeton this week.  District officials sent a letter to parents saying that on Tuesday a man had approached an elementary school student in the Spanish Village neighborhood asking to talk. The boy ran away.

   In both cases, the suspect is described as a white man in his 40s.  The girl told police he has a tattoo on his right forearm and was wearing a camouflage jacket with black pants and a black baseball hat.  

   Bridgeton police say they don't know if the incidents are related, but they're ask anyone with information to call them at 314-739-7557.

   The Bridgeton incidents come less than a week after a suspicious incident at an Ellisville bus stop. A fourth-grade girl was waiting for the bus when she says a woman in a white van tried to coax her into the vehicle three separate times. The girl ran home and her parents called police.
