NO LEADS ON ATTEMPTED CHILD ABDUCTION IN GREENVILLE ON SUNDAY
In a previous story reported by WGEL, an attempted child abduction took place this past Sunday evening in Greenville. According to the Greenville Police report, a 9 year-old juvenile said that he was riding his bike in Ganton Circle at Greenville College, when a black male approached him on foot, offered him candy and tried to grab him. The juvenile described the alleged suspect as being a black male with black hair, mustache, and tattoo on his right arm that resembled a dragon. The alleged suspect was wearing a red short sleeve shirt, blue jeans, and sandals. He was believed to be around 5' - 10" tall and in his 20's.
According to Greenville Police Sgt. Deb Keserauskis, there have been no leads up to this point. She did say that all the information has been provided on a locator for the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. The system is networked with departments throughout the U.S.
The Greenville Police do ask that anyone with information concerning the incident on Sunday, to please contact the Greenville Police Department at 664-2131.
CITY AND COUNTY LOOK TO FUTURE COMMON CODE GUIDELINES
With various subdivisions going up around the Greenville City limits within the last couple years, questions have been raised as to the different codes held by Bond County and the City of Greenville. According to Greenville Code Enforcement Officer Matt Willman, the city, as well as the county, has code enforcement over land that is located within 1.5 miles of the Greenville City limits.
It's his hope and that of George Shaw, the County Zoning Administrator, that things may be changed or added to both code books in order to make both governing entities the same. By doing this, it would allow for a prospective developer to abide by a single set of codes rather than having fit into two separate guidelines. The Bond County Board and the Greenville City Council would have the final say on the codes and guidelines.
