An alleged attempted abduction reported by a Belle View Elementary School student earlier this week was a false report, according to the Fairfax County Police.

The FCPD said Thursday evening that “after an extensive several day investigation detectives have determined the event did not occur.” The police did not elaborate further, and thanked the community for helping during the investigation.

Thursday’s announcement comes a day after the police announced that an unknown man had tried to abduct a Belle View student walking in the 6660 block of Fort Hunt Road on Tuesday afternoon. The initial report said the man came up behind the student and tried to pick them up before the student fought back and the assailant ran off.
