MONMOUTH BEACH - Police in Monmouth Beach are investigating a report of a possible attempted abduction.

Police say two boys, ages 8 and 10, were at a private beach club just before 7 p.m. yesterday. One of the boys told officers that a man in a car approached them.

The boy told police that the man tried talking to them, and then allegedly grabbed one of the boys' arms. Police say the boys resisted, and the man drove off.

The suspect is described as a white man in his 40s who was last seen wearing a navy blue polo shirt and dark glasses. Police say he was driving a yellow or gold Volvo wagon.
