Macon Police are on the hunt for a potential child predator following an unsuccessful abduction attempt Thursday night on Johnson St.

Authorities report the event occurred about fifteen minutes before ten when a 13-year old juvenile male was in the park. The boy reported an older male, who is described as possibly being Hispanic, dressed in all black and driving a white van, attempted to grab him. The 13-year-old reportedly attempted to defend himself when the suspect punched the boy and fled the area.

The Macon Police Department is actively investigating this incident.  Anyone with information is being urged to call the Macon Police Department at 660-385-2195 or the Anonymous Tips Line at 660-395-1111.
