Austin Police are on the hunt for a pair of kidnappers

15 year old girl kidnapped on her way to school in late May, she did escape

The Austin Police Department (APD) Child Abuse Unit is requesting the public’s assistance in identifying two suspects that kidnapped a 15-year-old girl on her way to school and tried to coerce her into having sex before she escaped from the vehicle. Just prior to this, the suspects approached a 17-year-old girl on her way to school and propositioned her for sex. Both incidents occurred near E. William Cannon Dr. and Elm Creek Dr.
The driver of the vehicle is described as:

  • Hispanic male
  • 30-35 years of age
  • Medium build
  • Medium complexion
  • Green eyes
  • Thin beard
  • Spoke Spanish with a Mexican accent

The victim and witness were not able to get a good look at the second suspect, as he was in the back seat of the truck.
The suspect vehicle is described as:
Dark gray or brown 2007-2013 GMC Sierra 1500 quad cab with chrome rocker panels (chrome additions to the bottom of the door on the outside), tinted windows and large tires. A similar vehicle photo is attached. Rocker panels are not pictured in the photos.
Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call the Child Abuse Unit at 512-974-6880, Crime Stoppers at 512-472-TIPS or use the new Crime Stoppers App. You can also submit tips by downloading APD’s mobile app, Austin PD, for free on iPhone and Android.
