PO­LICE are ask­ing for help iden­ti­fy­ing a sus­pect in an at­tempted child ab­duc­tion Tues­day evening in St. James.

Around 6:15 p.m., a 65-year-old man in the 200 block of Booth Drive re­ported he and his eight-year-old grand­son were walk­ing down their apart­ment stair­well when a man walk­ing the op­po­site di­rec­tion asked them for the time.

The sus­pect al­legedly threat­ened the grand­fa­ther and at­tempted to the grab the child, but nei­ther he nor his grand­fa­ther were in­jured. They ran to a park­ing garage and no­ti­fied po­lice.

Po­lice searched the area but could not find the sus­pect, de­scribed as Cau­casian, 25 to 30 years old, about 6-2 and 250 pounds, with short, wavy hair and blue eyes. He was wear­ing an or­ange shirt with a black stripe in the mid­dle and tan pants.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion should call 204-986-6219 or Crime Stop­pers at 204-786-TIPS (8477).
