CANTON TOWNSHIP (KDKA) –Police are investigating an attempted kidnapping in Washington County Monday night.

According to Pennsylvania State Police, the alleged incident happened in the Brook Avenue Town and Country Trailer Park in Canton Township, around 8:30 p.m.

The mother of the 9-year-old girl, who reported that someone tried to kidnap her, said her daughter is traumatized by the experience.

“Now she’s looking behind her and she’s scared. It’s a shame that now my daughter’s got to live like that,” Melissa Craig said.

She said once her daughter reported that three men in a car pulled up to her and one of them tried to snatch her away, her son tried to chase down the car, but they got away.

Other neighbors who live in the trailer park said they will keep a closer eye on their kids.

State Police said the vehicle was possibly a white Chevrolet Cavalier.

The man was last seen wearing a white tank top, jeans and black sneakers.

Anyone with information about the case is asked to call Pennsylvania State Police.
