Herndon Police Seek Help Identifying Suspect in Attempted Abduction

The Herndon Police Department is seeking the public’s help to identify a suspect in an attempted abduction back in September.

The sketches are of the same suspect as described by two different witnesses, according to the police department.

Police said a woman was walking home in the area of Elden and Locust streets at 8:30 p.m. on Sept. 4 when a man tried to convince her to leave the area with him. When she refused, he grabbed her and tried to lead her away, but the woman was able to escape and run away, according to police.

The suspect then approached the woman a second time and attempted to carry her away. A witness intervened, prompting the man to leave the area to an unknown location.

The police say “the suspect is a Hispanic male, 20-23 years old, with short, black hair, facial hair, a black t-shirt, khaki/light brown shorts, and off-white shoes.”

Anyone who identifies the suspect should call the police department at 703-435-6846.
