An attempted kidnapping was reported on Saturday afternoon, September 15, 2018 in the parking lot of Kroger on South Church Street in Murfreesboro.
Police arrived on the scene and spoke with the 15 year old victim who advised while he was collecting shopping carts in the parking lot, he was approached by a white male who grabbed his arm and told him to get into his awaiting vehicle.
The assailant was described as a white male wearing a black hat, grey t-shirt, black sunglasses, black pants and black shoes.
The teen told officers that two other men were with the subject. One was with the man who grabbed him while the third was sitting in the driver's seat of a brown or tan in color truck with dark tinted windows. The victim said the truck was parked nearby.
Instead of going with the unknown man, the teen made a run towards the store. As he took off on foot, the truck and the three men fled the scene.
The description of the truck was dispatched to all officers as a "B.O.L.O." or "Be on the lookout" for it. However, it has not been located.
Again, the teen got away and made his way back to the store on South Church Street across from the Indian Hills Golf Course and Subdivision.
