Two Abduction Attempts Reported in Shelton

The Shelton Police Department is investigating two attempted abductions Tuesday in the Mt. View area of the City.

At approximately 3 PM, a 12-year-old female student was walking home from school. In the 2000 block of King Street, the girl was approached by an unknown subject in a vehicle. The subject told the young girl to get in the car or he would “hurt” her. The girl dropped her backpack, screamed for help and began running down the street. An alert neighbor working in his yard, heard the young girl scream and called her to him. The neighbor then called 9-1-1. Shelton Officers from the nearby school arrived within minutes.

While officers and detectives were investigating this incident a second call came into MACECOM of a possible second attempted kidnapping in the same area. At approximately 4:00 PM, an 8-year-old female was walking on “K” Street near Jefferson Street after being dropped off by the school bus. She was approached by a male driving a vehicle who called out to her to come to him. The young girl ran from the area to her nearby home. The call to 9-1-1 was made after she told her older sister what happened.

Investigators are currently investigating both incidents. At this time, it is unknown if the same suspect is involved, the descriptions are somewhat different, but have similarities.

Suspect #1 vehicle: Light brown SUV (similar to a Chevy Tahoe)
Suspect #1 description: White male, approximately 30 years old, skinny and wearing an orange cap.

Suspect #2 vehicle: light blue, jeep type vehicle
Suspect #2 description: white or Hispanic male, long sleeve white/blue plaid shirt, brown hair, wearing glasses.

Anyone with information regarding these incidents or who may recognize the suspect should call the Shelton Police Department through the MACECOM dispatch center.
