PHOENIX (AP) - Several recent attempts to abduct children in a west Phoenix neighborhood have prompted police to increase patrols in the area.
KPHO-TV (http://bit.ly/1epCS1K ) reports that the most recent attempt occurred Thursday evening when two men followed an 11-year-old girl who then rode to a friend's house and called 911.
Sgt. Trent Crump says the vehicle sped away when a family friend of the girl approached it.
Police say a passenger inside the vehicle matches a description of a suspect in two previous incidents.
The other incidents occurred Feb. 6 and Feb. 18. Different vehicles were involved.
