    The attempted abduction took place not far from RAF Marham air base in Norfolk, England.

    UK authorities searching for two people in the attempted abduction of a serviceman at a Royal Air Force base in England said they were unable to rule out terrorism as a motive.

    Two men, one of whom had a knife, approached the serviceman while he was jogging near the RAF Marham air base in Norfolk, NBC News reported. The serviceman, who was off-duty and not in uniform, was uninjured. 

    Norfolk Detective Superintendent Paul Durham said the motivation for the attack is unclear and that authorities are "currently unable to discount terrorism," according to the Associated Press.
