Findlay Police looking for suspect in stranger danger incident

Posted: Updated:

The Findlay Police Department is investigating a report of a 12-year-old female being approached by an unknown male in the area of S. West St. and W. Front St. The incident happened Wednesday around 3:30 p.m.

The girl noticed a white van pull up behind her. She looked forward, and a few seconds later she felt someone grab her from behind.

The person wrapped his arms around her waist. The girl was able to pull away from the man and got away. She was not injured.

The man was described as a white male, possible in his thirties, with tattoos on his fingers, near the knuckle. He was wearing a blue jacket.

The van was described as an older, white box-style cargo van, with rust around a wheel well. There were no windows on the side of the van, except the front passenger door. It is believed there were two rear cargo doors on the van.

If anyone has information on the incident, you're asked to call Findlay Police at 419-424-7150 or 419-424-7163.
