On 04-06-2022 at 1527 hours, officers responded to an attempted kidnapping that took place on a walking path between Hamilton International School and Wallingford Playfield. The address is in the 1600 block of N. 42nd St/Densmore Av N. A twelve-year-old female victim reported that she was walking back to the school with a friend after visiting a nearby store. The victim and her friend went separate ways once they returned to the school. The victim entered a walkway between the school and playfield. As she walked down the path an unknown male suspect walked up behind her and asked her if she wanted a ride home. The victim said no and kept walking. Suddenly the male grabbed the victim by placing one hand over her mouth and an arm around her waist as if to pick her up. The victim elbowed the male suspect in the groin as hard as she could, which led him to release her. The victim ran back to where her friend was and was able to get a ride home, where she called police. The victim did not get a good look at the suspect but did recall a black two door sedan circling the area as she and her friend were walking to and from the store. A homicide detective was contacted and screened this incident.
