WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — Police are investigating after a small child was picked up by three unknown subjects near Historic Bethabara Park.
A concerned citizen contacted police shortly after 1 p.m. and informed officers of the incident.
A small child was reportedly riding a bicycle in the 2100 block of Bethabara Road when three black males in a rust or red colored four-door sedan stopped and had a conversation with the child. The child then got into the back seat of the vehicle, leaving the bicycle behind at the scene.
The child was described as a black male between six and nine years old, wearing black pants and a yellow or neon green shirt. Two of the black males were described as heavyset with no additional description. One was described as having a regular build.
The bicycle was a blue and maroon colored Spider-Man themed BMX bike.
At this point, officers have not been able to determine whether the subjects that picked up the child were family members or guardians.
Anyone with information on the child or the male subjects is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 336-727-2800.
