Pittsburgh Police officers from Zone 1 responded to a call for a possible abduction attempt outside John Morrow Elementary School on the 1600 block of Davis Avenue just after 4 p.m.
When officers arrived on scene they spoke with a 10-year-old boy who said he was leaving school when an older male got out of a dark-colored sedan and ran at him.
The boy told police that he hit the man and ran back into the school where police were called.
There are no arrests or suspects at this time.
Police are investigating.
