Man Wanted In Attempted Kidnapping

Police in Boyle County are searching for a man who tried to snatch a child.
It happened around 7:00pm Friday night at a home on Alum Springs Rd. The homeowner, Brian Whitehouse, told 27 NEWSFIRST three children were playing in the backyard when a man came out from the woods and tried to grab one of them. Whitehouse said when he saw the man he got his gun and fired a warning shot. The suspect took off running into the woods. Police say he may be wounded.
The children did not get a good look at the man. They just described him as a white man in a red hoodie.
