CORPUS CHRISTI - Police are very skeptical this morning of 2 sisters claims they were targeted by two men in an attempted abduction near Fannin Elementary School in Corpus Christi this morning.
CCPD Captain Michael Alanis says security video from a nearby home shows nothing happened in the area. Officers think the girls may have made the whole thing up.
Investigators are still talking to the girls to make sure they haven't missed anything. The girls' mother tells us her daughters would not make up this kind of story.She continued by saying they were hysterical when they first called her.
The sisters told police two men in a white van tried to abduct them off of Spring Street next to Cuiper Park. They said one sister kicked a would-be abductor before a neighborhood dog attacked, allowing them to hide in the park.
Police have been patrolling the area all morning. They actually printed out a list of registered sex offenders in the neighborhood and went house to house off that list searching for the two men.
The girls are sisters, 10 and 12 years old. They told officers the driver of the man had a tattoo on his wrist, the passenger who attempted the abduction, was wearing a ski mask. They say he had on a blue shirt and blue jeans.
Fannin Elementary Principal Debbie Scates told us she is not taking any chances and plans to speak with students about safety, along with sending a letter home to parents.
