(DPS) — On Friday, at around 6 p.m., the CNMI Department of Public Safety received a 911 call reporting an attempted kidnapping incident near a school bus stop in Dandan. Police were dispatched to meet with the caller.

Police met with the caller who stated that they wanted to report an unusual incident that occurred earlier in the day as they were waiting at their bus stop. An unknown, gray sedan (no make or model reported), pulled-up near 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 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, don’t hesitate and call 911 to report it. If you have any information on the individual(s)/or vehicle mentioned earlier and would like to remain anonymous, call the CNMI Crime Stoppers hotline at 234-7272.
