13-year-old fights off alleged abductor with pencil

`Midvale police are on the lookout for a man who allegedly tried to kidnap a 13 year old boy while he walked to school Tuesday morning.

Brendon Nichol tells police that he noticed a man following him almost from the moment he left his home headed to Midvale Middle School around 7:00 a.m.

“That’s when I took out my notepad and pencil and started looking at his facial expression and how big he was,” says Nichol.

Nichol also says the man followed him for several blocks, and then finally approached the boy from behind, getting him in a headlock. “My first reaction was to pick it up and stab him like this and it broke off somewhere in his face.” Nichol says.’
