 A Minnesota boy, who is staying with a Madison relative, says he was grabbed by a stranger while playing in the 800 block of Troy Dr. Saturday afternoon. The 13-year-old claimed a masked man pulled him toward a nearby railroad car. He yelled for help, and another boy, a 14-year-old from Madison, came to his aid, throwing rocks at the man. The victim says this allowed him to escape. A detective is following up on the report.
