    So I'm talking to a client when three little boys burst in the door. They're all sweaty, out of breath and one was even trembling a bit. They were 10-11 years old.
    I asked them what was wrong but they couldn't even explain because they were all catching their breath.

    When they finally could explain they said that yesterday afternoon two men in a blue Caravan attempted to abduct an 11-year-old girl on that very street several blocks West. Parents were notified and the one boy's mom said he could still walk home from school as long as the three friends stayed together. She also gave him her phone.

    SO they were walking home and reached the street my shop is on when they noticed a blue Caravan following behind them very slowly. Inside were two men who were "staring at them". So the boys got spooked and went into a nearby convenience store. They told the clerk what happened and the clerk said he'd "keep an eye out". The boys (wisely) spent some time in the store before returning to the street.

    THEN, when they eventually did leave the store, as soon as they hit the sidewalk on our street the van re-appeared from around a corner and followed them AGAIN! It was at this point that they began running. They ran about two blocks and that's when they got to my shop and came bursting in. As they did, they said the van turned down an alley a few doors down.

    So anyway- I told them to just stay here, I was going to call the police. The one kid said "Well, I don't know- will I get in trouble if it wasn't really them?" (He was so cute!)
    I said no- if you think you're being followed by a van, you call the fucking police (I didn't actually say "fucking"- I don't think) especially if it matches the description of a van involved in an attempted abduction.

    So I called the police and the one boy called his mom. They both arrived pretty quickly. The officer got their stories and said that they couldn't pursue anyone without a plate number, but that they would put word out about the van, including notifying the local schools that there'd been another incident.

    I felt SO bad for these boys. They were fucking TERRIFIED. One of my coworkers asked if it was possible that they were making it up, or if due to knowing about the previous incident that they were just letting their imaginations get the better of them. I said no way- they were fucking scared shitless. The one kid had tears in his eyes. And if the van reappeared after they waited in the convenience store? THAT'S fucking creepy as hell.

    When I called the police they said they'd send someone as soon as they could, but "It might be a bit- we just had a shooting at 17th and Linden" (I'm on 18th, two blocks up from Linden). :doh:
