Lakewood Police seek men in attempted abduction

Lakewood police have released a sketch of a man suspected in an attempted kidnapping of a 13-year-old girl Wednesday.

The teen was approached about 4 p.m. as she got off the bus at 40th Avenue Southwest and 100th Street Southwest, police reported.

She said two men pushed her to the ground, grabbed her arm and tried to pull her into a car. She broke free and ran to a nearby business for help.

The attack remained under investigation Friday.

The girl told police she didn’t recognize the men. She described them as in their 20s and dressed in black. She said they were in a newer, white Chrysler 300 with flashy rims.

She worked with a sketch artist on a drawing of the driver.

Police ask anyone with information about the men to call the department at 253-830-5000.
