Police are now saying reports of a child abduction in Woonsocket were fabricated.

A girl told police that four masked men wearing black snatched a 5-year-old girl on Vose Street. The girl said she the men threw another girl into a green SUV. The witness said the men’s uncovered hands indicated that two were black and two were white. 

The girl described the alleged victim as blonde with pigtails and a polka dot dress. Initially the girl told her father the story and her father called police to report the incident.
