ATTEMPTED ABDUCTION: Delray Police Ask For Your Help

DELRAY BEACH, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Delray Beach Police detectives are investigating an attempted abduction that occurred on March 16, 2015. It was reported to the Delray Beach Police Department that in the afternoon on Tuesday, March 16, 2015, a white male was observed making contact with and removing a minor child from the outside play area of a day care center located in the 100 block of SW 11 Avenue. This outside play area is located to the rear of the day care facility and borders an alleyway on the east side of the property.

A good Samaritan/witness told detectives that he saw a white male subject walking southbound in the alleyway from the day care facility with the minor child. Feeling that this was not normal, the Samaritan/witness called for the child to return to him, which the child did. The white male continued walking south in this alley and made no attempt to prevent the child from leaving him.

Once returned to the day care facility, staff did not contact Delray Beach Police Department, but instead waited to notify the child’s parents of this incident when they arrived to pick the child up at the end of the day.

During the ensuing investigation, it took several days to locate and interview the Samaritan/witness, as he does not have a cell phone and was not present when the initial police report was made hours after the incident first happened.

The Delray Beach Police Department developed a person matching the description of the white male suspect, but after interviews were conducted, he was eliminated as a viable suspect in this case.
