BATTLE CREEK (WKZO) -- Battle Creek Police say what appeared to be an alleged child abduction attempt seems to have been a misunderstanding.

A 13-year-old girl was walking her dog with a friend in the 300-block of Watkins Lane Sunday when two men in a vehicle stopped and claimed the animal belonged to them. When the girl said the dog belonged to her, one of the men grabbed her arm, but both girls managed to get away before the suspects fled.

After contacting the two men, police determined the men were simply looking for a lost dog that happened to be similar in appearance to the animal the girls were walking.
