RS source Heather Sapp is reporting a possible attempted child abduction in Rockford.


SOMEONE CAME AT MY DAUGHTER TODAY WITH A GUN! POSSIBLE ATTEMPTED CHILD ABDUCTION! At 2:35pm today, my 8 yr old daughter said a man in a red and black car (red on top, black on bottom) pulled in our driveway. She said she could see something in his hand before he left the car. When he stepped out of the vehicle he had a gun in his hand, a black pistol.

He had blonde hair that was straight and was down to his ears, gauged ears, a septum piercing, black T-shirt, blue jeans, flip-flops, and was wearing sunglasses. He is a white male, thin build, in his late 20’s too early 30s. He tried to approach my daughter while pointing the gun at her. She then screamed for me and he ran back to his car and took off.

This happened by Auburn Rd and Springfield ave. A police report has been filed.
