      Walker says four men tried to abduct her

      A 28-year-old woman was walking at the intersection of Madison Avenue and Edisto Drive in the Royall community of Florence Sunday afternoon , when she said four men tried to abduct her.

      The woman told police a burgundy Dodge Neon pulled up, she heard car doors close, and she turned to find four men walking toward her.

      The driver had a gun in his hand, according to Major Carlos Raines , with the Florence Police Department.

      She said she heard them yell for her to come back, and when she called 911 on her cell phone, they got in the car and drove off.

      Police have only vague descriptions of the men they're looking for.

      Officers are patrolling the community in an effort to find the car.

      "We'll see what's going on and if anybody else saw anything," said Raines.

      He says people in the Royall community shouldn't panic, but they should be aware of their surroundings and not walk alone.

      "Always be careful no matter what neighborhood you're in , " Raines sa id. "T he woman was smart and had her cell phone handy. She heard something. She was observant. I would recommend having a phone when you're out."
