Everett police investigating 3 abduction attempts that may have been committed by same man

EVERETT, Wash. -- The Everett Police Department said Friday that it is investigating three recent abduction attempts in south Everett that may have been committed by the same man.

On July 19, a man attempted to force a female into his car near the intersection of 75th Street SE and Evergreen Way, police said. A second abduction attempt by a similarly described man occurred later that same day near 92nd Street SE.

And on Aug. 16, a third, similar incident took place in the 5600 block of Wetmore Avenue.

In each case, the man threatened his female victims with a black handgun, airsoft or BB gun. The suspect wore a mask and demanded the victim get in his car. The victims in each of these cases were able to escape unharmed by resisting and running away, police said.

In each case, the suspect fled in a dark-colored, 4-door, compact-style car, police said. The male is described as white or Hispanic with a medium build and possibly a brown dog in his car.

No other information was provided by police.

Anyone with information about any of these incidents is asked to call the Everett Police Department TIP LINE at (425) 257-8450 or Crime Stoppers of Puget Sound at 1-800-222-TIPS.
