CANISTEO, N.Y. (AP) - State police say they're investigating the attempted abduction of a 10-year-old girl while she slept in her home in a rural western New York community.
Troopers say that around 3 a.m. Saturday a male illegally entered an unlocked home in the Steuben County village of Canisteo (kan-ih-STEE'-oh), in the Southern Tier 60 miles south of Rochester.
Police say the suspect entered an upstairs bedroom and removed the girl from her bed. Troopers say he then carried her down the stairs and headed for a door, but for some unknown reason left the home without taking the girl, who was unharmed.
Troopers are requesting anyone with information regarding the case to call the state police in Steuben County.
