Parents on edge after hearing man threatens to kidnap kids from school playground

Some parents in Racine are nervous after hearing that a man was threatening to kidnap kids at an elementary school playground. 

The report was made at Wadewitz Elementary School.

Police made an arrest today and that was likely due to the quick thinking faculty at the school.

Still, it's leaving a very unsettling and concerning feeling with parents whose kids go here.

CBS 58 News talked to a parent earlier this evening who said her daughter's friend saw the guy and they ran to a teacher.

Parents were told about this, and after a period of time, an arrest was made.

A telephone call with a recorded message telling parents about this was sent in both Spanish and English.

This is a developing story. Stay with CBS 58 News for more information as it becomes available.
