On January 14th, 2013 Loveland Police Officers responded to Monroe Elementary to investigate a reported attempted kidnapping. Composit drawing in the Coloradoan.
An eleven-year-old, fifth grade girl told school staff and then our officers that she was walking to school when an older model, red passenger van pulled up next to her. The van was occupied by two “older” white men. The driver had a pony tail. The rear passenger door of the van opened and one of the men told her to get in. She ran from the van toward school. When she made it to the school, she saw the van drive northbound on Madrone Drive next to Silver Lake Park.
There is no further description available for the men in the van; however, one specific item of note provided by the girl is that the van had a bumper sticker which read, “Save a dog, eat a Korean.”
Detectives are asking for the public’s assistance with locating the van and the two men. If anyone has information related to this call, this van, or its occupants, please call the Loveland Police Emergency Communications Center at 970-962-2151.
