Attempted Abduction Reported In Egremont

Staff Reports
EGREMONT, Mass. — Southern Berkshire Regional School District officials are warning parents of an attempted abduction Wednesday afternoon.
 
Superintendent Beth Regulbuto sent a message to school families saying four men attempted to grab a young woman on Creamery Road. According to the superintendent, the woman was able to free herself from four men in a cream-colored Jeep Wrangler with New York plates.
 
"She ran home and called the police, but the vehicle was already gone and was not able to be located," reads a memo released by Regulbuto.
 
The district will be making an extra effort to speak to students and reminding them how to stay safe around strangers. 
 
"With the addition of our SRO, we are planning to continue to teach safety as part of our standard curriculum, and the message of stranger danger will be reinforced. We want children to be safe, but not scared," Regulbuto wrote.
 
"In partnership with us, we ask that our parents/guardians talk with their child, in whatever manner you feel is appropriate, to warn them of the danger of going with strangers. I have informed the bus company as we have students with stops in that area, and all drivers have been alerted."
