Emergencies

WBOY reported earlier this week about an attempted child abduction at the Meadowbrook Mall.

Chief John Walker of the Bridgeport Police Department said the attempted abduction sparked fear in the public because of the way the story spread on social media outlets like Facebook. 

The police department said the investigation into the incident is now complete and after further review of security video, it has been concluded that the incident is unfounded. 

Chief Walker said he encourages the public to continue to contact law enforcement in any suspicious circumstance.
