West Des Moines Police Investigating an Attempted Abduction

On September 6, 2017, shortly after 3 PM, West Des Moines Police were alerted to a possible attempted abduction of a 15 year old female juvenile who was walking home from Valley High School.

In an apartment parking lot near the school, a Hispanic male who was operating a black colored Cadillac Escalade pickup (EXT), attempted to force her into his vehicle. After a brief struggle, the female was able to pull away from the male and run to a nearby apartment building for help. Investigators and patrol officers are searching the area for witnesses and evidence. The West Des Moines Police are asking for the public’s assistance if you have any information that will assist us in the investigation.
