ROCK HILL, S.C. — Rock Hill Police say they are investigating an attempted abduction of two girls who were walking home from their bus stop.

Police say his clothing was described as being a uniform with a black collard shirt with writing similar to a business logo on the front, khaki pants and Nike shoes.
