According to police, an older white man with a shaved head and a mustache approached an 8-year-old child Beckett Street in Williamstown.
The man attempted to entice the child into the van with a toy, but he reportedly sped off when an older child approached.
The man may have been heading toward Graniteville. He was driving an older green van with an attached box of the same color on the roof with Vermont plates.
