Highwood attempted abduction suspect sketch released by police

Thursday, July 11, 2013

Police in north suburban Highwood say they hope a sketch will help them catch a man who allegedly tried to abduct an 8-year-old boy walking home from school.

Police say Wednesday afternoon, the man asked the third grader if he wanted a ride.

The boy ran off.

Police say they think the same man might have tried a similar abduction of a 7-year-old girl on Monday.
