Sketches released in attempted kidnapping of 12-year-old

GEORGETOWN, Texas (KXAN) — Police in Georgetown released sketches Thursday of two possible suspects connected to an attempted kidnapping on June 20.

Authorities say a 12-year-old boy was walking on the 900 block on Austin Avenue on Friday night when he was confronted by a Hispanic man driving a red SUV.

The driver got out of the car and told the child to get in. The young boy believes the man had a knife in his hand.

Instead of getting in the suspect’s car, the boy ran to a nearby business and told the employee what happened. The suspect then got back in his SUV, turned around and drove north on Austin Avenue. Authorities believe a woman was also in the car.

The man is said to be around 30 years old, 5 feet 9 inches tall and weighs about 130 pounds. He also has very short, dark hair and was wearing a camouflage pullover and tan pants.

Georgetown police are looking for a red SUV with aftermarket rims. A Dallas Cowboys sticker may be on the rear bumper.

The license plate number may end in the letter “U.”

The woman in the passenger seat of the SUV is described as white with blonde hair, and she wore a pink shirt.

Anyone with information that could help in identifying these people is asked to contact Det. Bill Pascoe at 512-930-8407 or email bill.pascoe@georgetown.org.
