Detectives Investigate A Possible Attempted Abduction

January 23, 2006 00:00



On Monday, January 23, 2006, at 9:18 am, East Precinct officers responded to a report of a possible attempted abduction near Glenfair School, located in the 15300 block of Northeast Glisan Street. Officers arrived and contacted a 10-year-old student who stated that she believed she was the victim of a possible attempted abduction this morning while she was walking to school. The incident began at about 7:35 am, when the victim was approximately two blocks west of the school. The victim stated that as she was walking, she realized she was being followed by a 5’7” tall, thin-framed person wearing a black-colored ski mask, black-colored clothing, and carrying a black backpack. The victim became frightened and began to walk faster. The suspect continued to follow the victim for a short time until the victim began to run. The suspect then entered an older, medium blue-colored van with a red, white, and yellow-colored “support our troops” sticker on the back of the van and fled the area.

Detectives were called to the scene and are continuing the investigation. Anyone with information is asked to call Detective Mike Weinstein, Missing Persons Unit, at (503) 823-0446.
