Posted: April 30, 2012 - 2:43pm  |  Updated: April 30, 2012 - 11:01pm

The Juneau Police Department released additional details Monday about a man suspected in the attempted abduction of a fifth-grade boy last week.

JPD described the suspect in a release. He is a man in his 30s or 40s who weighs between 180-220 lbs. He has olive-colored skin and short, black curly hair with some gray hairs interspersed. He also had a few days growth of facial hair, but not a full beard. He drove a dark green four-door sedan similar to a Nissan Maxima.

The attempted abduction happened Thursday afternoon, when the man tried to talk the boy into his car as the boy was getting ready to leave Gastineau Elementary School at the end of the school day. The man said he had been sent by the boy’s family to pick him up, but could not come up when a password established by the family for just such an occasion when the boy challenged him for it. The boy rode home on his bicycle, where his mother reported the incident.

Anyone with information on this attempted abduction is asked to call JPD at 586-0600 or visit juneaucrimeline.com. People using the website can remain anonymous.
