The abduction attempt happened during a sun-drenched playtime Thursday, just after 12 p.m. The playground behind Earl Kitchener public school at Dundurn Street near Aberdeen Avenue is fenced in. Playtime is monitored by staff. Later the stories would come fast and furious, but one source said a school staffer had seen a child on the playground crying, and asked him what was wrong. The child replied that someone took his friend away."
