New Britain Police Investigate Possible Kidnap Attempt
New Britain police are looking into a possible kidnap attempt Friday. Police say an 11-year-old told them she was in the Park Drive-Uncas Road area when a man in a mini-van approached her. She told police that when she rebuffed him, he drove off, but made a U-turn back toward her and got out of the vehicle. She ran home and called police.
Police say she described the driver as an older man with a grey beard and grey hair, and said the vehicle was a grey mini-van, dirty aroiund the bottom, with a defective door handle. She said the license number included an “X.”
New Britain police ask anyone with information about the incident at about 8 a.m. to call the Criminal Investigation Division at 860-826-3135.
