According to a Facebook post by Ginger Maturin, there was an attempted kidnapping in New Iberia yesterday.

Maturin posted on Facebook that two girls narrowly escaped an abduction on Weeks Street.

Parents, teach your kids to run, scream, fight - do whatever they must to avoid being kidnapped. It's scary when stuff like this happens, especially this close to home!
