    Police are investigating two incidents of attempted child abduction, said officials.

    According to investigators a nine-year-old boy was riding his scooter at the intersection of Beths Ave and Kathern Street at 3:45 p.m., when he was approached by a white male in his 30's.

    The man was inside a green or blue pickup truck and threatened to take the boy if he saw him riding the scooter again, said police.

    In a separate incident, authorities said, another nine-year-old boy was approached by a man driving a dark colored car with tinted windows at 3:50 p.m., around 99 Hiltbrand Road.

    The boy said the driver of the car motioned him to come closer to the vehicles, said police.

    Both boys were not harmed.

    The incidents happened down the street from each other. Police said the boys gave different vehicle descriptions so they do not believe the two incidents are related.

    Anyone with information regarding both incidents are urged to contact Bristol Police at 860-584-3011.
