ROANOKE, Co., Va (WSET) -- The Roanoke County Police Department says after numerous reviews, there was no attempted child abduction at the Chuck E. Cheese on Electric Road Friday.

According to police, they conducted numerous interviews and reviews of surveillance video from multiple cameras within the restaurant.

They say the investigation revealed that the original complaint was the result of a completely appropriate interaction between the child and a restaurant employee who offered to let the child use a ride for free. The offer was misinterpreted by the child who reported it to the child's mother.
