HALTOM CITY (CBSDFW.COM) – First there was news of at least two attempted child abductions in Tarrant County over the past few weeks. Now police in Haltom City say they’re investigating a possible attempted abduction in their city.
The incident happened on Monday afternoon as a 19-year-old girl walked home along Denton Highway.
The girl told authorities a man in a pickup pulled beside her and offered her a ride, but she refused. The suspect stopped the truck, got out, and tried to force the girl in the vehicle.
Another driver stopped when the girl began screaming and the pickup driver got back in his vehicle and drove away.
The suspect is described as a white male in his 30’s. He has short, light brown colored hair with some gray, and facial hair.
The man was driving a green Chevrolet Silverado extended cab truck. There were tools in the bed of the vehicle and trash on the dashboard.
The attempted abductions in Tarrant County were similar – a man in a truck or SUV approaching girls as they walked along a street and in one case chasing after a girl. The suspect in those attempted abductions, in North Richland Hills and Hurst, is still on the loose.
Anyone with information about the incident in Haltom City is asked to contact the police department there at 817-222-7000.
