Reported abduction attempt in Nashua turns out to be fake


NASHUA - A boy who reported to police that a man had grabbed him on Lake Street and tried to drag him away was found to be lying, police now say.

An investigation into the incident reported on May 22 led to increased patrols and had police interviewing residents and reviewing video surveillance from the area.

Police now say the 12-year-old had made up the story because he was afraid of getting in trouble for getting home late.

The juvenile involved has been counseled and will not face criminal charges, police say.
