Thornton police investigate attempted child abduction

Thornton police are investigating an attempted child abduction and are asking for the public’s help in identifying a suspect.

The incident happened at about 7:30 a.m. Friday at the STEM Launch school, 9450 Pecos St., police said in a news release.

A 10-year-old student told police that “she was grabbed just outside of the school just before the start of the school day,” the release said. The victim “resisted” the attack and the suspect fled.

Police on Friday released images from school surveillance footage of the suspect who has yet to be identified.

He is described as about 5 feet, 8 inches tall, with a thin build and blond hair. He was wearing a black Adidas hooded sweatshirt with a triple multicolored Adidas logo, black jeans, black shoes with white soles, a mask and black gloves.

Anyone who has information on the incident, or on a suspect, is asked to call Thornton police at 720-977-5150 or call Metro Denver Crime Stoppers at 720-913-7867 (STOP).
