Stafford, Va. The Stafford County Sheriff’s Office is reporting an attempted abduction that took place last night, Thursday, April 10 between 9:15 – 9:30 in the evening in the Stafford Lakes subdivision in southern Stafford County.

Deputies responded to a call of an attempted abduction on Hopkins Branch Way at 9:23 pm. The responding deputies spoke to the 17 year old female victim who told them that while she was out walking her dog she was approached from the rear by a Hispanic male subject. The male subject grabbed the teen’s wrist at which point the teen turned on the man, kneed him in the thigh causing the male subject to release his grip, allowing the teen to run home. During the assault the male subject never spoke to the teen and was last seen running up Hopkins Branch Way towards Charter Gate Drive. Multiple units of the Patrol Division saturated the area along with detectives in an attempt to locate the male subject. Deputies and detectives returned again this morning in an effort to locate the subject.

The 17 year old teen was also approached by the same subject early on the same morning around 6:30 am. In that incident the teen was out walking her dog when the same Hispanic male, driving a white van, pulled up to her and began speaking to her in Spanish. The teen reports that the subject did not appear angry and his tone was conversational in nature. During that encounter the male subject made no attempt to grab the teen.

The male Hispanic subject is described as 5’02” – 5’08” tall weighing between 140 – 150 pounds with short black hair. The subject had no facial hair and was reported wearing a black shirt with some dirt marks on it and tan, short cargo pants. His age is described as late 30’s to early 40’s. It was also noted that his top two front teeth were crooked.

Anyone who has information relating to this incident is asked to call the Sheriff’s Office at 540-658-4400, Stafford Crime Solvers at 540-659-2020 (callers may remain anonymous) or TEXT “Stafford + your tip to CRIMES (274637).
