Police Warn Of Child Abduction Attempt Near Natomas School

THE NATOMAS BUZZ | @natomasbuzz
Sacramento police plan to have additional officers on duty near a Natomas elementary school after a reported abduction attempt this afternoon.
At about 2:20 p.m. today, police said a young, female student walking home from H. Allen Hight Elementary School was approached by an adult male who was driving a white pickup truck.
The man reportedly pulled his vehicle up beside the girl, near the intersection at Kokomo Drive and North Park Drive, and from his open window said, “Your mom told me to pick you up.”
When the student did not recognize the driver, she ran back to the school. Police said the driver did not pursue the girl.
North-area command police Capt. Jim Maccoun said officers are reviewing video from school cameras and seek additional footage from the public.
“We are looking for any home video from those streets at that time,” Maccoun said.
The driver is described as a black man with a light complexion and shaved head in his 30s driving a newer, white four-door pickup truck with an extra cab, tinted windows and custom wheels.
Police are asking parents to remind children who walk to school about stranger danger and the importance of telling a responsible adult if contacted by a stranger. Representatives for the school and Natomas Unified School District could not be reached for comment.
Anyone with information about the incident or suspect is asked to contact Sacramento police at (916) 264-5471.
