AUSTIN (KXAN) — Austin Police say a young boy told them a man in a car looked weird and may have been following him near the intersection of N. Lamar Boulevard and Masterson Pass in North Austin Tuesday night.

He was able to find his mom and report the incident to police.

Initially the boy told police he believed he was being chased by a man he had never seen before. He believed that man may have had a knife.

Officers were called to the intersection at 6 p.m.

Austin Police tell us they no longer consider the case to be a possible attempted kidnapping. Officers at the scene, however, did arrest one person on a warrant, but it is not known if that person is connected to this case. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
