Franklin Borough Police say the recent rumors circulating on social media of an attempted child abduction at Walmart and ShopRite are unsubstantiated.
Last week the police reportedly received a call about an Asian female in her 40's following a woman and her child in the parking lot and inside of the local stores. They responded to the scene but they didn't have contact with the Asian woman described.
While they are still investigating and trying to identify the woman, the police made it clear that the rumors online are unfounded.
"There was not an attempted abduction or kidnapping."
They are also encouraging parents to talk to their children about stranger danger and gave some tips for teaching children how to react around strangers.
