PONCHATOULA - Police took to social media Monday afternoon to squash rumors circulating that claimed a man was trying to abduct women in the Ponchatoula area.

Ponchatoula Police said the response stemmed from a recent Facebook post that claimed a white man in a green truck was trying to kidnap area women. Police said they have received no such reports.

The post goes on to say the suspect was shot during an attempted kidnapping of one of his victims.

Ponchatoula PD said they have spoken to the Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff’s Office, who have no knowledge of the alleged incident either.

However, anyone with information about an actual similar incident is urged to contact local authorities.
