Bellingham girl, 10, reports attempted kidnapping


BELLINGHAM - A 10-year-old Bellingham girl reported an attempt to abduct her on Saturday, Nov. 9.

According to Bellingham Police Lt. Rick Sucee, the girl was walking in the 2300 block of Utter Street at about 1:45 p.m. when a forest green, four-door vehicle with tinted windows and mud on its lower body stopped beside her.

The driver, a man, pointed what the girl assumed to be a gun at her from beneath his sweatshirt and ordered her into the car. Instead, the girl ran away and the car drove off.

The suspect was described as a man with a "tan" complexion, multiple scratches on his arms and black sunglasses.

Sucee asked anyone with information about the incident to call Bellingham Police Department, 360-676-6911.
