DPS probes alleged attempted kidnapping in Dandan

Posted on Jan 13 2020


On Friday, Jan. 10, 2020, at about 6pm, the CNMI Department of Public Safety received a 911 call reporting an attempted kidnapping near a school bus stop in Dandan.

The caller later told responding police officers that they were waiting at their bus stop when an unknown, gray-colored sedan (no make or model reported), pulled up near to the bus stop, and parked along the shoulder of the road. The suspect in the vehicle rolled the passenger-side window down slightly and asked a female juvenile to follow him “to Garapan and Dandan.”

The suspect is described as having dark hair, and spoke good English. The vehicle is described as a gray-colored sedan, having dark tint, with scratches on its side.

The Department of Public Safety would like to remind the public and parents to be aware of this incident, and to speak with your children about the dangers of strangers asking unusual questions, especially when there are no familiar adults around.

This case remains ongoing. If you or someone you know are victims of a similar incident, call 911 to report it. If you have any information on the individual(s)/or vehicle and would like to remain anonymous call the CNMI Crime Stoppers hotline at 234-7272. (PR)
