New London Police Investigate Attempted Abduction of 9-Year-Old Girl

New London police are investigating an attempted abduction of a 9-year-old girl, and have released a photo of the suspect vehicle.

Police said the girl was walking up the driveway of 93 State Pier Road when she was approached by a man in a pickup truck around 1:15 p.m. The victim told police the man had his hands on his “private parts” when he opened the door, and tried to get her inside the truck.

The victim ran to a family member’s apartment who contacted police.

The suspect is described as male with a medium build, possibly 30 to 40 years old, with facial hair. He was wearing glasses, a dark-colored shirt and a blue Nike hat at the time.

The pickup may be a silver early 2000 Dodge Ram, with white wall tires with silver rims, sidestep rails, circular white stickers or decals on the upper right and upper left rear windows, and white paint on the inside of the rear tailgate.

Anyone with information should contact police.
