Albuquerque police are investigating an attempted abduction they say happened near a middle school.

The incident occurred Friday morning near the intersection of 10th and Central close to Washington Middle School.

Witnesses say someone tried to abduct a 13-year-old boy at knifepoint after getting off a city bus. Police also say there is a possibility this may have been an attempted robbery of the boy's headphones.

Police obtained video from the bus with footage that is believed to be the suspect.
