Police Blotter

From the Swampscott Reporter:

Swampscott police are investigating a possible abduction attempt of a 12-year-old girl on Walker Road.

Just after 2:30 p.m., police were alerted that a woman with curly red hair in a turquoise van tried to get the 10 [sic]-year-old to get in the vehicle. Police said the girl told them the woman asked twice for the victim to end [sic] her vehicle. The girl ran to a local “safe house” and police were notified.

This happened within about 100 yards of the house my family has lived in for thirty years, so I'm not exactly unfamiliar with the neighborhood. So can anyone tell me where, precisely, the "local 'safe house'" is?
