APD Locates Vehicle Involved in Child Abduction Case
After an attempted child abduction May 20 by a man in a white 1990 Chevorlet pickup, the Amarillo Police Department located both the vehicle and the man involved in the incident.
Detectives from the APD interviewed the man, a balding Hispanic male, and the investigation is ongoing.
The child involved in the incident was an elementary-aged girl, who said the man pulled up next to her and began talking to her from the car in the area of 36th St. and South Williams. Eventually, the man grabbed the girl's arm at which point she pulled away and ran home.
After interviewing the driver of the vehicle, the APD said the information obtained did not support a criminal charge against the man and he may not have intended to harm the child.
In order to make sure they have the full story, detectives are attempting to locate the female who actually picked up the girl.
