PHOENIX — Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office deputies were investigating a possible attempted kidnapping that was reported Monday, the agency said.

In a press release, the sheriff’s office said a man allegedly tried to kidnap a 10-year-old boy near Elliot and Tuthill roads in Buckeye about 7 a.m.

The boy told deputies a man with dark hair and a tattoo on his right arm grabbed him while he was in a desert area near his home. A search of the area was fruitless.

The boy was the only witness.

The suspect was a white male with dark hair. He is average height or tall with an average build. He was last seen wearing a dark shirt.

Anyone with information on the possible crime is asked to contact the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office at 602-876-1011.
