Password prevents possible kidnapping

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- The use of a password may have prevented a kidnapping at the Christian Academy of Knoxville on Monday, according to the Knoxville Police Dept.

According to authorities, a middle-aged man approached a student after football practice and told the boy he was sent to pick him up. When the boy asked for the password, the man stared at him briefly before driving off.

The suspect was described as a forty year-old man with short hair and driving a white Ford pickup.
