PCSO Investigates Alleged Attempted Abduction of 14 YO San Tan Valley Boy

Pinal County Sheriff’s Office Detectives are investigating the alleged attempted abduction of a 14 year old boy in San Tan Valley early yesterday evening.

At approximately 5:45 PM on 05/18/2011 Deputies responded to a residence on Dana Dr in San Tan Valley for the report of an attempted abduction.

When deputies arrived on scene a 14 year old boy reported he was walking home from a friend’s house in the area of Charbray and Busa when a male subject in a White Cargo Van made a u-turn on the road and pulled up next to him asking if he needed a ride. The boy told deputies he told the male subject “no” and continued walking. He reported the man asked him, “are you sure” and the boy told deputies he asked the man to “go away”. The boy told deputies the man then got out of his van and “charged” him. The boy reported he kicked the man in the abdomen and punched him in the face and fled back to his friends home while the van drove Southbound on Charbray.

Deputies and investigators were unable to locate any tire tracks at the scene of the alleged abduction.

The boy described the suspect as a white male, about 25-26 years old with black hair, wearing a cowboy hat, a white muscle shirt and black jeans driving a white Ford Cargo Van with a dent on the driver’s side. The year is unknown.



An attempt to locate the suspect and vehicle was sent out to area agencies and the boys clothing was taken for possible DNA analysis.
The Sheriff’s Office reminds you to make sure your children are in pairs when walking from place to place and remind them to be vigilant and aware of their surroundings at all times.
Anyone with information regarding this incident, suspect or vehicle is urged to call the Pinal County Sheriff’s Office at 1-800-420-8689 or Silent Witness.
