GROVE CITY -- An 11 year old boy plans to walk to school with friends after he says he had to punch a man who tried to snatch him from the street.
It happened Wednesday while Brady McNeil walked home from school in the area of Girbert Street and Anna Avenue.
McNeil says he felt like he was being watched earlier in the week but on that day the man actually got out of his car.
The 6th grader says the man asked him to get in the car and when he told him no the man tried to grab the little boy.
That's when McNeil says he punched the man in the nose and ran away.
The boy called his mom when he got home.
Police are now looking for a gold Dodge Neon in the case.
Officers have also increased patrols in the neighborhood.
