Residents in a Fishers neighborhood are eager for an arrest in an attempted child abduction.
Parents and residents flooded the Fishers Police Department with tips after the media released details on the attempted abduction last Friday.
"I just met with investigators and we are following up on a few tips that have come in as a result of the exposure we've gotten from the media," said FPD spokesman Tom Weger.
Police are stepping up patrols in light of the incident, which allegedly happened in the Brooks Chase subdivision.
A woman told police a man tried to lure her 8-year-old daughter into his car near 136th Street and Brooks School Road.
"The child was playing in the driveway at the time, and the strange man drove up in a black Toyota Camry. He parked alongside of the road and rolled down his window and yelled out to the 8-year-old," Weger said.
The girl was not harmed.
Police still haven't found the suspect or his car and some residents are eager for an arrest.
"The kids are always outside, and they're only 5 and 6," said grandparent Donna Gerlovien. "We had a long talk with (our grandchildren), so they know they can't trust anybody and if we go in the house for a minute to get a drink of water or go potty, you've got to come with us. You cannot be unattended anymore by yourself."
Police told RTV6 information that the man has previously been seen around the neighborhood has not been confirmed.
Police are also investigating another attempted abduction from several weeks ago, but don't believe the two incidents are related.
Investigators described the suspicious man as white, 30 to 40 years old, with a thin build and dirty blond hair.
The vehicle was described as a late 2000 model black Toyota Camry.
