North Port Police investigating 'serious and credible' attempted kidnapping report

North Port Police are investigating what they call a 'serious and credible' attempted kidnapping report.

On Monday evening NPPD was called to the area of Berwick St./Harmony Rd. on the southside of Highland Ridge Park about an attempted child abduction that happened around 8:30 a.m.

The attempted abductor is described as a white male in his late 20s-30s. He is short, with a thin build, bald and wearing a black hooded sweatshirt.

He was last seen on foot in the area of Highland Ridge Park.

Police are hoping someone in the community had a video recording device in the area that may have captured the suspect.

If you have any information on the suspect or the incident, please contact Det. James Keller at 941-429-7322 or jkeller@northportpd.com. Reference case #2019-02-0209.
