ARVADA, Colo. — Police are warning residents Tuesday about who they believe is one suspect responsible for two attempted kidnappings of children.

Investigators say the first attempt happened at about 8 a.m. Monday when a Jefferson High School student who was on the Arvada West High School campus says she was approached by a suspicious man who tried to kidnap her. She got away from the man and contacted authorities about what happened to her.

Then at 6:00 p.m. Monday, “Arvada Police were dispatched on a report of another attempted child pickup. Two boys, both 12-years-old, were approached by a man in a vehicle in the area of Terrace Park who asked them to approach the vehicle. The boys both left the park and told an adult who called police,” a press release from Police says.

Police think the two incidents are related because all three victims described a similar suspect.
– White or Hispanic man
– 30 years old
– 5’6″ tall
– Short, dark, curly hair
– Driving light brown or tan 4-door sedan, possibly a Honda

Police ask anyone who sees the suspect or his vehicle to call them at 720-898-6900.
