LPD: More Possible Abduction Attempts Reported

Posted: Updated:

LAWTON Okla_ More reports of someone in a red vehicle trying to pick up children have come in to Lawton police.

They say they sent a unit to the 4900 block of Avalon Avenue Thursday at around 11:00AM in the area of Park Lane Elementary on the east side of the city. An officer was not far from the scene, but when he arrived, there was no red car and no children in the area. A neighbor said they didn't see anything, but the child told police a black man, possibly in his 30s, has approached her at her bus stop in a south Lawton subdivision.

Then, police got yet another call about a Douglass Elementary School student who claims to have been followed to school by a suspicious man two days in a row. That was earlier this week, but no report was filed for that incident.

Although no one should try to connect the two abduction attempts we've reported on earlier this week, the suspect in those cases was also driving a red, four-door vehicle with tinted windows. That suspect is said to be a white or Hispanic man as well.

Friday, 7News learned of a reported child abduction in Alex, OK in Grady County. There is nothing so far connecting that abduction to the attempts in Lawton.

If you know anything about any of these incidents, call Crimestoppers at 580-355-info.
