LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- An incident in Louisville may be connected to attempted abductions in Bardstown.
Police say Thursday morning a female employee at the Republic Bank on Bardstown Road and the Gene Snyder was approached by a man in a white van.
She was going inside when she was stopped by a white man who appeared to be in his 50's.
He was driving a white van just like the two cases we recently told you about at the Cracker Barrel in Bardstown. In those two cases, the female employees reported a man tried to lure them into his van.
This week, Bardstown Police posted video to their Facebook page that shows the van they are looking for.
"Obviously this incident has caused us some concern. We want to err on the side of caution on this one and make sure we get the information out to the public and make sure people are vigilant," said Major Michael Sullivan of Louisville Metro Police.
The bank also happens to be next to a Cracker Barrel here in Louisville.
As authorities said this week, these locations are close to parkways and freeways, making for a potentially quick getaway.
Louisville Police couldn't give us details of what the man said to the bank employee. Bank employees tell us they have been told not to comment about this situation.
Employees at some nearby businesses say they are on high-alert and want to make sure female employees aren't walking alone.
"It's something that's definitely brought to my attention. I'm going to have to change some things of how we do our business around here," says Chris Parsons, owner of Parsons Insurance Agency.
Louisville Police are trying to get surveillance video from Thursday's incident and are now talking with Bardstown Police about the case.
