A warning has gone out to parents after a middle school student was the target of an abduction attempt in southwest Houston. It happened this morning on Pagewood at Fondren. School officials say a 13-year-old girl who attends Paul Revere Middle School was waiting for a bus near Piney Point Elementary School when a man in a black car approached and told her to get into the car. The girl, who didn't know the man, ran into Piney Point for help, and police were called.

The girl, who was unharmed, was transported safely to her school. The suspect is described only as an African-American man in a black car.

A letter was sent out to make parents aware of the situation. Additional patrols have been added in the neighborhood.
