After an attempted abduction at a Sioux City park last week, the police department is reminding everyone to be ready to deal with a potential abduction situation. Police said as the temperatures go up, kids are outside more. They said it's important to tell kids to not talk to strangers and not to approach strangers, no matter what. Police remind kids that if they find themselves trapped, it's important to scream and yell for help as much as possible, and to find a trusted adult like a parent, coach or teacher.
