Portland Police say a suspect in an attempted kidnapping in the Pearl District may have been involved in another incident Tuesday afternoon.
A woman was on Northwest Northrup between 9th and 10th avenues when a man matching the suspect's description started to follow her. She confronted him and he walked away.
Later that afternoon, a man tried to take a six-year-old boy, but the boy's father scared the suspect away.
The suspect is described as a Hispanic male, 20-30 years old, 5'1" to 5'3" in height, heavyset, dark hair, wearing a black hoodie and white wash jeans, a grey beanie hat with a ball on top, and black and white shoes.
If anyone has access to surveillance camera recordings in the surrounding neighborhood, we ask that they review footage from about 2:00p.m to 3:20p.m. to see if better images of the suspect might have been captured. Anyone with video or any other information about this case, please contact Detective Michael Schmerber at Michael.Schmerber@portlandoregon.gov or 503-823-0991.
