Detectives Go Door-to-Door in Neighborhood Where Man Attempted to Kidnapped Girl

Detectives with the Montgomery County Police Special Victims Investigations Division and uniformed officers from the 5th District were going door-to-door in the area of Mateny Road where two teenage girls have approached by a man in a small white SUV in the last six weeks, and one was almost abducted on Friday.

Montgomery County Police held a press conference on the sidewalk of Mateny Road, just north of the 7-Eleven store where on Friday, April 6, a 14-year-old girl ran an errand, and as she walked along the street toward her home was approached by a man driving a small white SUV.

“Today the detectives standing behind me, who are from the Special Victims Investigations Division will be disseminating these flyers to shopkeepers and residents in hopes that someone will recognize the composite that was put together by the 16-year-old victim and confirmed by the 14-year-old victim,” said Capt. Paul Starks of the Montgomery County Police Department. “We hope that someone will recognize the composite and help us resolve this case.”

Last night, April 9, police released a composite sketch of the suspect after a second teenage girl came forward saying that a man in a white vehicle approached her twice in the last eight weeks. Police believe the same man is responsible for all three incidents.

“The descriptions were taken independently, and they appear to be pretty consistent,” said Starks. “These two victims, while not adults, were credible to detectives.”
