The Duluth Police Department is seeking the public’s help after the possible abduction of a 14-year-old girl was reported in Lincoln Park on Wednesday evening.
Police were called at 5:45 p.m. with a report that a black Ford Expedition SUV with white rims pulled up to the girl on the 1900 block of West Third Street. The caller said an American Indian man wearing dark clothing and a bandana over his face got out of the SUV carrying a police-style baton. Police were told he pushed the caller and then forced the girl inside the vehicle. The caller said three other people were in the SUV.
Police do not know the name of the girl but described her as American Indian with long, black hair put up in a bun. She was wearing white sunglasses and a green shirt with “Aero” written on the front. She had white leggings on, flip-flops and a silver bracelet.
The man described as the alleged abductor as wearing a Chicago Bulls long-sleeve shirt. The caller said he had black hair in a braid and was about 5 feet, 11 inches tall.
The license plate number on the Ford might end with 03, police said.
Police issued an inter-agency alert about the incident, an Amber Alert-style system among law enforcement departments. They wouldn’t issue an actual Amber Alert until they know more about the alleged victim, including her name.
Anyone with information about the incident should call 911.
