WATERLOO (KWWL) -

Waterloo police are investigating an attempted abduction in the 800 block of West Eighth Street.

Captain David Mohlis says a mom and her daughters were coming home from getting groceries at around 11:40 p.m. Thursday night when a car pulled up to the curb and the person inside told the 8-year-old girl to get in.

Mohlis says the car drove away when the mother yelled for the girl to get in the house.

Mohlis says neither the girl or the mom saw the person in the car, but the girl told police that the person in the car "sounded like a black man".

The car is described as a black sedan with a spoiler.
