At approximately 3:49 pm Officers were dispatched to the 3700 block of Emory Street for an attempted kidnapping. A 10-year-old girl reported that around 3:20 pm a male approached her as she was walking near the intersection of Emory and Rushing and advised the 10-year old that her parent had sent him to pick her up.  As the male approached closer, the 10-year-old girl ran for safety.
