Police are warning parents and child care facilities after an attempted child abduction late last week.
At approximately 3 p.m. Friday, a woman attended a daycare and specifically requested to pick up a child by her name. The suspect was not able to provide identification and was refused access to the child. The suspect left without further incident. A parent was advised and it was confirmed that no one else was authorized to pick up the child.
The woman is described as:
• Adult Caucasian female
• Blonde hair
Investigators believe that this was a targeted incident, but wish to warn all parents and daycare providers as a precaution. The investigation is continuing.
