Sheriff investigates attempted abduction

An 11-year-old girl reported an attempted abduction a week ago in Lyons Township.

According to a Walworth County Sheriff's Dept. news release, she told investigators she was walking home near Brandi Street and Clearwater Court in Lyons Township at 3:20 p.m. Friday, Sept. 26, when a sport utility vehicle with three men inside drove past.

The vehicle turned around and stopped next to her. The driver asked the girl to get into the vehicle, but the girl refused.

The driver then exited the SUV and grabbed her, trying to force her into the vehicle. The girl got away and ran home.

The vehicle was described as a black, four-door Jeep with several dents and a red and white stripe.

The driver was a white man with black hair. He had a cross tattoo under his right eye.

Two young men with blond hair were sitting in the back seat.

The investigation is ongoing.

Anyone with information should call the sheriff’s office at (262) 741-4424 or Crime Stoppers at (262) 723-2677.
