Frederick Police Investigate Attempted Abduction


FREDERICK, MD – At about 1535 hours on September 12, 2018, the Frederick Police Department received a call from the victim of an attempted abduction. The victim, a 17-year-old female, reported that she was walking on Hillcrest Drive near McCain Drive at about 1520 hours, when a white male driving a white work van attempted to abduct her. She was able to leave the area and call police.


The victim described the van as a newer-model, small, white work van with light green lettering (possibly oriented in a diagonal fashion) between the rear wheel wells and up across the sliding door. The van has a roof rack, which had no equipment stowed on top at that time. The van drove away and headed northbound on McCain Drive.


The victim described the suspect as a white male with dark hair, 5-05 to 5-08 tall, with tattoos on his arms.


Multiple patrol officers and detectives canvassed the area, and a lookout was broadcast to other police departments in the area.  Frederick Police officers are aware of the incident, and will be routinely patrolling the area.

The Frederick Police Department is asking anyone with information about this incident to contact Detective Steve Radtke at 240-549-4579. Those who wish to remain anonymous can contact the department by voicemail at 301-600-TIPS (8477), text message at 240-674-TIPS (8477), or by email fpdcrimetip@frederickmdpolice.org.
