Attempted Child Abduction

The Naperville Police Department is investigating an attempted child abduction that occurred on Friday night at Rotary Hill around 11 p.m. The child’s mother said while she was sitting in the driver’s seat of her parked vehicle, an unknown male approached, opened her car door and attempted to pull the child from the vehicle. After failing to remove the child, the man fled on foot. He is described as a thin white man in his 20’s, clean-shaven with blonde hair. Police said the child was sitting in a booster seat wearing a seatbelt, which may have helped prevent the abduction. Anyone with information on this incident is encouraged to call the police department.
