Parents of the Barberton School District  received a call early Friday from Superintendent Jeffrey Ramnytz.

After talking to the student, police determined it was not an attempted abduction. A 17-year-old boy was arrested and charged with attempted robbery. A bat was also recovered.

The Herald is working to get additional information on this incident.
