Abuction Attempt near Shelton School

shelton_patch2The Shelton Police Department is investigating an incident that occurred about 3:30 pm Monday near Mt. View Elementary School. According to a news release, a white male adult with black hair who was on foot asked a 10-year-old girl to get in his car. The student did not know this male and she walked back to school. The student also said that it was the same male that approached her last week driving a black Honda style vehicle. During that incident, the suspect drove by and said “hi” to her.  

This is the only information available at this time, but Shelton Police are working with the schools to obtain further information and provide safety plans for parents of young children.

All parents and caretakers of children should encourage them to walk with others to and from school, as well as educating them regarding getting in vehicles with strangers.

Anyone with information regarding this incident should contact the Shelton Police at 360-426-4441 or Detective Maiava at 360-432-5133.
