WOONSOCKET â€“ Local police, the FBI and the state police swung into action Tuesday afternoon after a reported child abduction, but it didnâ€™t take them long to figure out it was all a hoax.

The investigation began about 12:30 p.m. after a juvenile reported seeing four men kidnap a young girl on Vose Street. Police wouldnâ€™t say whether the witness was a boy or a girl.

That caught my eye, so I looked into it.
