NEWS lettering

On Thursday, Nov. 15, 2018 at approximately 9:00 a.m., Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to Prairie Middle School in Aurora for a report of an attempted child abduction which occurred earlier that morning in unincorporated Arapahoe County. Upon arrival, officers learned a juvenile male was walking east in the 7300-block of Harvard Avenue before school at about 8:10 a.m., when a white Toyota Corolla drove past him, stopped, and reversed back towards him. The driver got out of the vehicle and attempted to put the juvenile male into the vehicle. The juvenile was able to get away and fled.

Deputies immediately began searching the area for the suspect and canvassing the neighborhood for witnesses. No video surveillance around the area where the attempted abduction occurred was located.

The suspect was described by the victim as a white male, in his 50s, between 5’10” and 6’ tall, medium build, and bald with a trimmed brown beard. He was wearing a short-sleeved button down shirt.

Anyone with information about this crime or this suspect can contact the Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office Tip Line at 720-874-8477.
