Apartment abduction

A very scary event early this morning in south Everett. Here’s what is known so far from Aaron Snell at Everett PD…

At about 4:30 a.m. on September 21, 2013, a resident in the 1300 block of Bruskrud Rd called 911 to report a girl, about five years-old, was knocking at their door. Arriving officers observed the girl was not fully dressed and took custody of her. An investigation was immediately started to determine where the child lived and why she was outside.

On an unrelated call, just before 5:30 a.m., officers were dispatched to an apartment complex in the 800 block of 112th St SE on the report of a suspicious circumstance. Someone reported a missing screen and open window at an apartment unit. Arriving officers contacted the resident at the unit and soon discovered that his five year-old daughter was missing.

A police K-9 performed a track from the apartment on 112th St SE, along the Interurban Trail to Bruskrud Rd and linked the scenes together. Items of evidentiary value were also located.

Detectives with the Special Assault Unit, who investigate crimes against children, were dispatched to the scene to interview the girl. At this time, detectives believe the girl was taken from her room by a stranger and are calling the incident a child abduction. It appears there was intent, but for unknown reasons no sexual assault occurred. The girl has been taken to Providence Medical Center – Colby Campus for a medical evaluation.

During an interview, the girl described the male who took her as darker skinned, shorter than average adult height, normal build with no visible tattoos. At the time, he wore jeans, a shirt, a white hat and white earrings.

Anyone living near, or was on, the Interurban Trail in the early morning hours between 112th St SE and Everett Mall and saw or heard something suspicious, is asked to call 911 or the Everett Police Department TIP LINE at (425) 257-8450.
