Attempted Abduction of an 18 Year-Old Female

Yesterday, around 3:30 pm, we responded to the area of 158th and Ash Lane on an attempted abduction. The 18 year-old female victim reported she was grabbed from behind by a male while in the driveway of a residence. She was able to scream and fight back which caused the suspect to let go of her and flee. He was last seen getting into the passenger side of a van driven by another unidentified male.

The victim described the suspect as a 40 to 50 year-old Hispanic male, approximately 5’09, and heavy set. He was reportedly wearing a long-sleeved blue shirt with an animal design on it, jean shorts and burgundy shoes. The male had dark “spiked” style hair.

The suspect vehicle is described a cargo type “work” van with flat red paint.

The Overland Park Police Department is currently investigating and asks that anyone with information on this incident contact the TIPS HOTLINE at 816-474-TIPS or the Overland Park Police at 913-344-8750.
