Kenosha police issue warning after attempted abduction at Buffalo Wild Wings
KENOSHA -- Kenosha police are issuing a warning after an attempted abduction Thursday, June 15th at a Buffalo Wild Wings restaurant on 118th Avenue near 71st Street.
According to police, it happened between 11:00 p.m. and 11:30 p.m.
Police said two female victims reported as they were leaving the area, a vehicle began to follow them. This vehicle later pulled alongside, and a Hispanic male suspect tried to get the females to speak with him.
When they refused, the male suspect went back to his vehicle and removed what they believed was a weapon.
The female victims then drove away, but were again stopped by the suspect a short distance later.
The suspect was again holding the weapon, police said, however, the females were able to drive away a second time, and get to safety.
Kenosha police investigated in the area -- but nothing was located.
The suspect vehicle was described as a black or gray pickup truck, while the suspect (driver) was described as a younger Hispanic male with a thin build and short, dark hair. A passenger was described as a younger Hispanic male with a medium build and short, dark hair.
Milwaukee police later contacted Kenosha police after an incident in Milwaukee Friday. Kenosha police said this is a "separate, but possibly related incident" and "together, the investigation is ongoing."
Police are advising women to use caution and be aware of their surroundings.
Anyone with information pertaining to this is asked to contact the Kenosha Police Department.
