FALCONER – A 21-year-old woman was charged following an alleged attempted kidnapping that was said to have taken place July 24 at Falconer Park.
Ellicott Police said that they charged Tracey E. Dalton, 21, with third-degree falsely reporting an incident and making a punishable false written statement after investigation.
Dalton was issued an appearance ticket returnable to Town of Ellicott Court at a later date.
“We should always be vigilant because children are children and you have to keep an eye on them,” Chief William Ohnmeiss told WNYNewsNow when reached by phone Thursday. “That can happen anywhere. Although this did not materialize, it can be a terrible reality that could happen to any of us so we have to keep our eyes open.”
