LAYTON — Police are investigating an abduction attempt outside an elementary school here.

Officers said it happened about 9:20 a.m. Saturday outside Layton Elementary, 319 W. Gentile St., where a 6-year-old boy was playing. A man in a white, Dodge pickup drove up to the boy.

"He made some verbal indication that he wanted the boy to get in his truck," Layton Police Sgt. Mark Chatlin said Monday. "The boy didn't. He ran over to his dad and the truck left."

The pickup is described as 2003 or 2004 year model, white, extended cab with a diesel engine and some type of vinyl sticker writing on the side. The driver was described as white, in his 60s, balding, wearing glasses with a white buttoned-up shirt.

The vehicle description is similar to a report of an attempted abduction last week near Willard. Chatlin said detectives are following up and a bulletin was distributed to police agencies statewide.

Anyone with information is urged to call Layton police at 801-497-8300.
