Aurora Police Want Help Finding Attempted Abduction Suspect
AURORA, Colo. (CBS4) – Police in Aurora are investigating an attempted abduction of a young girl.
According to police, on Tuesday at approximately 4:30 p.m. an 11-year-old girl was approached by a man while she was walking home from school near East Evans Avenue and South Telluride Street.
The victim told police the man was driving a black four-door hatchback vehicle with “heavy scratching” on the passenger door that looked like it had been sanded down for painting.
“The suspect asked the victim if she wanted a ride home. When the victim refused the suspect got out of his vehicle and grabbed the victim from behind,” police said in a statement. “The victim was able to fight off her attacker by kicking him in the shin. She slipped out of her backpack and ran away to safety.”
