An 11-year-old boy told police a stranger tried to abduct him on his walk home from school. 

It happened Tuesday afternoon around 4 p.m. on Triple Crown Drive located off of Greenwood near Holly and Saratoga. 

Family members told officers the boy was walking home from Los Encinos Elementary when a man allegedly tried to lure him into his truck.

The boy ran home and told relatives who then called police. 

According to police, the boy described the suspect as a thin man who appeared to be in his 50's, with dark skin and short dark hair.
