Weathersfield cops alert residents to man who tried to abduct girl, 10


Police are warning the community to be on the watch for a man in a white cargo van who attempted to lure a 10-year-old girl into his vehicle at 2:45 p.m. Thursday in the 1300 block of Depot Street.

Police Chief Joe Consiglio said the girl was walking home from school when a white male in his 30s or 40s in a van with rust on the driver’s side door asked her several times if she wanted a ride home.

The girl didn’t respond to the questions and ran away, Consiglio said.

The man was bald, unshaven, wearing a black hooded sweatshirt with the sleeves cut off, and he had tattoos all over his arms depicting wings of a dragon or the Harley Davidson logo.

Such tattoos are sometimes called sleeve tattoos because they cover the entire arm.

Anyone with information is asked to call Weathersfield Township Police Department at 330-652-9944.
