Seattle police said they received a report around 11:15 a.m. about a man attempting to force a 10-year-old girl into a vehicle in Seattle’s View Ridge neighborhood. The suspect fled without the child after a witness intervened.
Seattle police found the suspect’s vehicle in Fremont and arrested him.
Around 12:50 p.m., several witnesses called 911 and reported that a man tried to snatch a child off the street in downtown Seattle.
