An Edmond boy fled his neighborhood on bike after he said he was accosted and then chased by a man in a black pickup, his mother said.

Beth Lamey said she arrived home about 6 p.m. Friday with her son Noah, 8, in the Pine Valley addition near N Santa Fe Avenue and W Danforth Road.

Her neighborhood is family-oriented and safe, she said, and her son left his house on his bike to play with friends nearby, which is typical.

He rode to a few different homes to visit, and at the last home, as his friends went inside, he walked to the end of a driveway.

That's when a man got out of a black pickup and told Noah to get inside his vehicle, Lamey said.

When her son refused and hopped on his bike, the man started following him in the pickup, she said.

Afraid to stop, he rode eight miles trying to lose the vehicle, his mother said.

Noah rode until he spotted a squad car parked at a home near NW 164 and MacArthur in Oklahoma City.

The off-duty law enforcement officer called police. Noah's last name is not being used at the request of his mother.

He told police the man was white, tall, dressed in all black, and had worn a ski mask in his neighborhood. The truck was shiny and new, and the man had a deep voice, he told police. The man had long hair sticking out of the mask, he said.

Oklahoma City police Capt. Dexter Nelson said police have little to go on after taking the report.
