Middletown Police: No attempted abduction took place

MIDDLETOWN, OH (FOX19) - Middletown police say the 12 year old girl who told them a man with a knife tried to abduct her was not telling the whole truth.

The girl now says she ran after hearing a noise that scared in the wooded area near her bus stop Wednesday morning.

The girl originally told police as walking to a school bus stop in the 5000 block of Bentwood Drive when she was approached by a suspect with a knife. When the girl tried to run away, the suspect grabbed her and cut her hand with knife. She was not seriously hurt.
