Attempted Abduction in Bettendorf

Bettendorf police are looking for a suspect who attempted to abduct a 12-year-old girl on Monday, September 12, 2016.
 
At approximately 7:30 p.m. the girl was walking in the 3900 block of Wakonda Drive when a male, described as 50 to 55 years old with gray/black hair, no facial hair and a deep voice, pushed open the passenger-side door of his vehicle after approaching and told the girl to "get in the truck."
 
The vehicle is described as a purple/plum-colored Ford pickup truck, two-door with fender flares over the wheel wells. The vehicle was in poor shape with lots of dents and the bed appeared to be empty. The vehicle was seen heading south on Wakonda toward Tanglefoot Lane.
 
Anyone with information is asked to call Lt. Al Poirier at 563-344-4042.
