Two Men Attempt to Abduct 13-Year Old Boy on Padre Island

A 13-year old boy said he was nearly kidnapped on Padre Island when two men demanded that he get in their truck while he was walking home Wednesday evening.

Mark Robbins said he was walking home from a neighborhood park with his brothers at around 5:20 p.m. when he spotted a silver Ford F-150 driving along Hawksnest Bay Drive near Three Fathoms Bend. There were two men inside of the truck, and they turned around and began to follow behind him slowly.

"They asked me, like, they told me to get in the truck, and if I didn't, they told me they were going to rape me," Mark said. "I then told them I live just a couple of houses down. I'm going to go call the cops on them; and as soon as I said that, they turned around and they were gone."

"I had low concern before this happened, but now my concern is probably at a nine, because I don't know if they were serious," said Missy Pixley, Mark's mother. "But I have to take it that way because of the consequences that could have happened if we don't take it seriously."

Mark said the men were serious, and weren't smiling or kidding around when they told him to get into the truck with them or they would rape him.

Police say that a detective has been assigned to the case and the description of the truck was given out to all police units.

Mark said he thought both men were Hispanic and in their mid-40s.
