Attempted Kidnapping

On June 13th, 2018 at approximately 8:40pm, Sparks Police Officers responded to 1260 El Rancho on the report of a child luring. Officers on scene interviewed witnesses who advised, a 6 year old female was seen by neighbors, walking with an unknown, middle aged, Hispanic male. The male was walking hand in hand with the child, away from the area of the child's apartment. A neighbor saw the male walking with the child and yelled for the child to come to her. The male left in an unknown direction while the child was returned to her family. The child was uninjured.


The Sparks Police Department is asking for the public's assistance in identifying the suspect. Anyone with information is encouraged to call Sparks Police Dispatch at (775)353-2231 or Secret Witness at (775)322-4900.
