| by Sarah Fruchtnicht

An Indianapolis 11-year-old says he fought off a man who dragged him into his car on Tuesday.

George Boyd was walking home from SENSE Charter School when a man in a white car pulled up and asked him where he was going.

Boyd said he ignored the man, who suddenly grabbed him and pulled him inside.

“He pulled me in, I was on his lap,” he told Fox 59. “I punched him in his face like that and I kept doing it.”

A police officer saw a young black couple drive by and pulled them over. What he did next left them stunned:

The driver took off with Boyd on his lap, who continued to punch and kick the abductor.

Boyd says there was another young boy sitting in the back seat of the car.

A short time later, the driver dropped him off near a busy intersection, the New York Daily News reported.

As he got out, Boyd says he told the other boy to run and they both took off.

Boyd was later taken to the hospital and treated for injuries he sustained after allegedly being punched in the ribs. He is said to be “doing well.”

George’s message to other kids in the area: “To be careful and don’t trust anybody that you don’t know.”

Police are searching for the white 4-door sedan with some front-end damage and a silver stripe on the trunk.

"We want to reassure the public and the students and the teachers that we are handling this as quickly as we can," Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department officer Andrew Sheler told Fox 59.

"Our main goal is this to find the individual, identify the individual, so we can move forward with the investigation," he said.
