VICTORIA, Texas - An arrest has been made in an attempted kidnapping.
The vehicle has been located and identified. This was possible through a crime stoppers tip that was received on the evening of Feb. 4th, shortly after VPD asked the community for assistance. Officers and detectives, with assistance from the Victoria County Sheriff’s Office, have since made an arrest in connection to this attempted kidnapping.
VPD says that they are thankful for the relationship they have the community and the assistance provided in this ongoing investigation.
On Friday, February 3, Victoria Police were in the 3400 block of East Rio Grande investigating reports by a 16-year-old girl who said a man tried to lure her into his SUV. Police said the teen was walking in the 3400 block of Rio Grande when an unknown man driving a Blue Ford Explorer attempted to lure her into his vehicle.
When he began to exit his vehicle, the teen ran from the area to safety. Officers and Detectives have conducted numerous follow-ups in and around the area on Rio Grande from Lova to Delmar Dr.
