Girl claims man tried to kidnap her in Hamilton - News, Weather & Sports

Hamilton police investigate attempted kidnapping


Hamilton Police are looking for a suspect in a reported kidnapping.

A school-aged child reported to the Hamilton Police Department on Monday that a male subject grabbed her while she was walking home on Heathrow Court near Fairborn Drive.

The child reported that the suspect did not engage her in conversation; he just grabbed her, and attempted to get her into his open van.  The girl screamed and kicked the suspect several times, which enabled her to get away and make it home safely.

The suspect is described as a white male, approximately 5'10", with a medium build, a scruffy beard, and dark curly collar length hair.  He was wearing torn clothing and shoes, a knit cap, and appeared very unkempt.  

He was driving a white box van with dents all over the sides.  The van was further described as having dark tinted windows and being very dirty on the inside and out.

Anyone with information on this subject or vehicle is urged to call 911.
