According to Edmonton police, two women attempted to pick up a 12-year-old boy in southeast Edmonton on Thursday in what they are calling an attempted kidnapping.

The boy was walking home on 38 Avenue near 55 Street around 7:30 p.m., police said, when he was approached by two women in a Sprinter-style van.

According to reports, one of the women got out of the van and told the boy to get in.

Police said the boy was able to run home.

The van is described as a black or dark gray Sprinter-style van, similar to those driven by Amazon drivers.

The woman who spoke to the boy is described as white, approximately 30 years old, with a medium build and shoulder-length brown hair. She was wearing a black dress at the time.

Anyone with information about the woman or the van is asked to contact police at 780-423-4567 or #311 from a cell phone.
