The Broken Arrow just sent out this press release about an attempted abduction this morning:

On 2/10/12, at approximately 7:15 A.M., the Broken Arrow Police Department received a report of a possible attempted abduction of a juvenile who was waiting at the bus stop located in the 200 block of West Timberlane. Several child and adult witnesses reported that an unknown male wearing a green athletic style jacket, a dark colored “beanie” hat, tiptoed up behind a female juvenile (13yoa). They reported he grabbed her, put his hand over her face, and drug her through a yard adjacent to the bus stop. The child screamed and several witnesses yelled at the suspect. The suspect released the child and ran northbound through the neighborhood. Several witnesses attempted to chase the suspect to no avail.

The victim stated the suspect told her that “if she screamed, he would kill her.”

Officers have inundated the area and are currently searching for the suspect. K-9 Teams are on the ground canvassing the area.

The suspect is described as race unknown, approximately 6ft tall, wearing a green style athletic jacket, and dark colored beanie style hat and possibly blue jeans.

Two local elementary schools, Childer’s and Springcreek, have been placed on “lockdown” status.

The victim is safe and unharmed.

Updates will be given if suspect is apprehended or if any new information develops.
