(Omaha, NE) -- Omaha Police are asking for the public's help in identifying a potential kidnapping suspect.
OPD says on Wednesday, May 26th, officers were called out for a reported attempted abduction. Investigators say a 17 year old girl told officers that she was walking in the area of 30th and Jaynes Street when a vehicle began following her. Police say the vehicle pulled up to her and that as she tried walking past the vehicle, the driver got out of the vehicle, yelled at her, then grabbed her. Investigators say the girl reported that the suspect attempted to drag her into the vehicle, but that she was able to fight off the suspect and flee from the area.
The suspect is described as a black male, about 25 years old, with shoulder-length dread locks and a mustache. He is approximately 6 feet 2 inches tall and 220 to 250 pounds. The vehicle is described as an early 2000s Chevy Tahoe with 4 doors. It may be blue or purple and has been described as having "chameleon" paint and custom trim. The tires appear to have black rims.
The vehicle was last seen in the area of 32nd and Grand on the morning of the attempted abduction.
