DENVER (CBS4) – Denver police want to find the suspect in a new attempted abduction case from over the weekend.
The apparent crime happened on Saturday evening near Crestmoor Park in Southeast Denver and it involved two young victims.
Ryan Carbone, one of the victims in the case, talked with CBS4 about the incident on Monday and said it was frightening.
Carbone, 13, said a man in a minivan first tried to abduct a boy down the street. Then Carbone says he became the target.
“When we were coming back to our house the guy started following us and then right on the curb the guy said ‘I know you, get in,’ ” he said.
Carbone says the man drove a silver Dodge Caravan and followed him for at least 10 homes and then got out of the car and chased him partially up his driveway.
“My brother ran up and opened the garage door and then we closed it, and as we closed it he came halfway up the driveway,” Carbone said.
The man was described as being a heavyset Hispanic man, 5-foot-8 with short dark hair. He was wearing a white t-shirt.
Schools in the area alerted families about the attempted abduction.
“We were really frightened. It’s just so brazen. It was 7 p.m. and there was daylight. It was our driveway. Our two kids were together,” Kendall Carbone, Ryan’s mom, said.
Carbone told CBS4 that although the description of the suspect is vague at this point, he says he could certainly spot the suspect if he saw him again.
