Las Vegas police are investigating an attempted abduction of a middle school student Monday morning in the northwest valley.
A letter sent to parents of Leavitt Middle School students said a man tried to abduct a student near Tenaya Way and Alexander Road, less than 2 miles southeast of the school.
Officers responded to reports of the attempted abduction about 8:50 a.m. at 3970 N. Tenaya Way, according to the Metropolitan Police Department. School police had detained a man that matched a description of the suspect, and Metro took him into custody, Metro spokesman Larry Hadfield said.
The letter said the student was not harmed.
