Knox County deputies are warning parents to talk to their children about safety after three men attempted to get a young girl to get in a car with them in Owls Head yesterday afternoon (Sept. 18).

According to a post on the Knox County Sheriff's Office Facebook page, the girl, who did not recognize the men, refused to get into the vehicle and eventually ran into a wooded area to escape the men. She was not harmed in any way, and was able to safely return home to report the incident.
