Suspect vehicle in an attempted abduction in Jackson, MN

Windom police are asking the public to remain vigilant after a reported attempted child abduction Friday, at about 2:25 p.m. Friday on East Hill.

Police say an 11-year-old boy was riding his bike when a blue, four-door Ford sedan pulled up next to the child, got out, and told the boy to get into the vehicle.  The boy was able to run home. The man was described as 6′ tall with darker skin, tattoos on both arms, short hair, and no facial hair.

The Windom Police Department is asking the public to remain vigilant and report anything suspicious immediately.  Police are also recommending that children walk in groups.

Meanwhile, in Sleepy Eye on July 5, a teenage girl reported that a man repeatedly asked her to get in his vehicle, even as she began running.

The incident is similar to three reports this month in Jackson, MN, which is about 20 miles southeast of Windom.

Anyone with information on these cases should call 911.
