Police investigating attempted abductions
The Major Crimes Unit of the Everett Police Department is investigating three abduction attempts
that occurred days apart in Everett.
Mid-morning on July 19, 2016, an adult male suspect attempted to force a female into his car near the intersection of 75th Street SE and Evergreen Way. A second abduction attempt by a similarly described suspect occurred later that day near 92nd Street SE and 7th Avenue SE.
On Aug. 16, Everett Police responded to a third, similar incident in the 5600 block of Wetmore Ave.
In each case, the suspect threatened his female victims with a black handgun, airsoft, or BB gun. The suspect wore a mask and demanded the victim get in his car. The victims in each of these
cases were able to escape unharmed by resisting and running away. In each case, the suspect fled in a dark-colored, 4-door, compact-style car. The male is described as white or Hispanic with a medium build and possibly a brown dog in his car.
Detectives are investigating any and all leads related to these cases. Anyone with information about any of these incidents is asked to call the Everett Police
Department TIP LINE at 425-257-8450 or Crime Stoppers of Puget Sound at 1-800-222-TIPS.
