Older Sister Credited for Stopping Attempted Child Abduction in Fenton
A teenage girl is being credited for stopping an attempted abduction of her little sister in Fenton this week.
According to the Tri-County Times, police were called to a home on E Ellen Street in Fenton for a possible attempted child abduction. After some investigation, the police are saying that a white male, approximately 5-feet, 11-inches tall, thin build, with dark hair, and having a small tattoo under his right eye, wearing a grey hooded sweatshirt, walked into the home through rear door of the house. He picked up the 4-year-old girl and started to walk outdoors with her. The little girl’s older sister heard the noise and grabbed her sister from the man. The man left the house and drove away.
The Fenton Police said this same man has come to this home twice before this incident. In late February he came to the house asking if a certain person lived there. When the teenage girl said yes they did, the man left. Then on March first, the man came back to the house and attempted to assault the teenage girl.
Police are attempting to identify the man, and are hoping to speak to a fisherman who was fishing at the park across from the home during the incident. If you have any information about what happened, please call the police station at (810) 629-5311.
