Longview Police received information earlier today that a post on social media was circulating in the Longview area. The original post stated a man ran across a woman's yard and she called Police for a suspicious person. After people began to share the story on social media it changed to include a child was playing in the driveway and someone attempted to kidnap that child. LPD wants to clarify make citizens aware that this story is not true. As of today Longview Police Department has not received any calls with this type of situation in the past week.
Longview Police want to remind citizens to always be vigilant and keep their children safe by watching their children when they are outside playing at home, in the park, or other places where someone might have quick access to their children.
