BREAKING: Abduction attempted in Brazil

Thursday, February 18, 2010

Police officials want to warn parents about an alleged attempt to abduct a child in the Brazil area Thursday evening.

According to Brazil City Police Department Sgt. Dennis Archer, around 3:45 p.m., an unidentified family in the Edgewood subdivision reported a man in a gold, newer-model Ford pickup truck attempted to talk their child into getting inside the vehicle.

Archer said when the 7-year-old boy, who was in front of his home on Ringo Street, refused the suspect's persistent attempts and ran inside, the man quickly drove north in the direction of the Forest Park Plaza.

The white male suspect is described as possibly being in his 40s to early 50s with white hair and a goatee, wearing a blue baseball hat and sunglasses.

To report suspicious activity in a neighborhood, information regarding this case or any other, contact the Brazil City Police Department at 446-2211.

Please keep an eye on the kids in this neighborhood. Just before the attempt to abduct this little boy happened, my 10 year old grand-daughter was approached by this vehicle. The men in the van spoke obscene words to her and when they noticed she had a cell phone they took off really fast. Hopefully the police will find them before they are able to harm our kids.

Make sure your kids know their Safe zones like a friends house on their way home from school, a business, etc. I think the Sheriff is dong a kids ID workshop at the home show at the armory this weekend.
