State Police release sketch of alleged child abduction suspect
BATTLE CREEK, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - The Michigan State Police have just released a composite sketch of a man police say tried to kidnap a 3-year-old girl from a Battle Creek park.
They're now asking for the public's help in finding him.
They say he's a white male, in his 60's, with white hair and a white beard.
He's believed to be about 5'6", 160 pounds, and was last seen wearing a t-shirt and blue jeans.
It all started Sunday evening at Piper Park in Battle Creek, when a babysitter took a 3-year-old girl to play with 4 other children.
That babysitter told Newschannel 3 that she turned her back for a minute, and the little girl was approached by a strange man.
The babysitter chased the man with a baseball bat, and called 9-1-1 right away, as neither she nor the mom can identify the man.
If you recognize the sketch, call the Battle Creek Police Department or Silent Observer right away.
