The Lubbock Police Department is making an urgent appeal to the public for information on an attempted kidnapping. It happened Tuesday, December 28th, in the north alley of 2200 49th Street.
Just before 4 p.m. that Tuesday two girls ages 9 and 10 were in this alley throwing away trash. That's when a Hispanic man approached them asking if they had seen a lost dog. One girl ran away, the other spoke briefly with the suspect when he grabbed her and forced her into the vehicle. When he began to drive away, the victim jumped out and escaped unharmed.
Now, police are looking for the man. He has a medium complexion and wavy, black hair combed back. He was wearing black pants and black police-style boots. He may have had a scar or bruise of some sort on the left side of his neck or a mole on his face.
