Possible Abduction Attempt in South Berkshire

NEW MARLBOROUGH, Mass. — Parents in the Southern Berkshire Regional School District are being advised to be alert after a possible abduction attempt Thursday afternoon.

Authorities say the incident happened about 3:30 on Norfolk Road in New Marlborough as an 11-year-old boy walked home from school.

The boy told investigators he was approached by a man in a gray, four-door car with blue and white New York license plates.

The driver was described as a white man, approximately 30 to 40 years old with a thin build and medium-length black hair that looked a little shaggy.

Anyone who might have seen a vehicle matching this description is asked to call the state police barracks in Lee at 413-243-0600.

In a letter to parents, Mount Everett Regional School Principal Glenn Devoti said the suspicious man "may have attempted to abduct a 6th grade elementary student."

The police and bus company were notified, wrote Devoti.

The New Marlborough Police Department, state police detectives assigned to the district attorney's Office and state troopers from the Lee barracks are investigating.

"Please be cautious about leaving students unsupervised at bus stops and notify police or school personnel if you observe anyone matching this description or observe any other suspicious behavior," he asked.

Lanesborough Police were also looking for a New York vehicle earlier this week, that one a red sedan, possibly a late 1990s model similar to a Pontiac Grand Am, and operated by an older white man with facial hair.

In that case, police said the car had been seen around school bus stops in Lanesborough and they wished to speak with the operator.

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — A two-car accident on West Main Street backed up traffic around West Main, Brown and River streets on Thursday afternoon.

According to police a late model black Ford Focus was headed west on West Main when it stopped for a bus in front of it. A white Honda Accord with New York plates apparently did not notice the Ford stopping and plowed into the back of it.

No one was hurt in the accident and the airbags in the Honda went off.

The accident occurred around 3 p.m. just east of Grimes Street. The roadway was limited to one lane and westbound traffic was allowed through and eastbound detoured over Brown Street. The cars were towed from the scene around 3:30 and the road reopened shortly after.
