Lincoln police are investigating an attempted kidnapping at a northwest Lincoln park that occurred around 4:30 p.m. Monday.
Captain Jake Dilsaver told KFOR News an unknown man in his 20’s approached a 10-year-old female and embraced her at Lakeview Park near 2001 W Q Street Monday afternoon. That’s when another 10-year-old female ran to a neighbor’s house and asked for help.
Two neighbors ran to the park when the suspect fled the scene. One of the neighbors then called police while another tried to follow the man who then ran away from the park.
Lincoln police canvassed the neighborhood but were unable to locate the suspect. LPD investigators are following up with neighbors and witnesses Tuesday.
