Man In Camaro Wanted For Trying To Abduct Kids In Hamtramck

HAMTRAMCK (WWJ) - Police are looking for man who allegedly tried to abduct children in Hamtramck this week.

According to investigators, in both incidents the stranger offered the little girls candy as they were getting off a school bus.

The first incident happened at around 5 p.m. Thursday near the I-75 Service Drive and Commor Street, police told WWJ Newsradio 950's Stephanie Davis.  Police said the man opened his car's passenger door and tried to get the kids to get inside.

The latest attempt was Friday morning in the area of Caniff and I-75 — not far from the scene of the first incident — when a man matching the same description followed a girl for a while before he tried to grab her.

The kids, in both cases, ran away and were not physically harmed.

The suspect is described as a  light-skinned black male in his 30s with a medium build and a beard. He is believed to be driving a newer black Chevy Camaro with a white racing stripe down the center of the body.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Hamtramck police at 313-876-7803
