Middleton police investigating report of attempted child abduction


MIDDLETON (WKOW) -- Middleton police responded shortly before noon Thursday to a report of an attempted abduction of a 12-year-old girl from an apartment complex on Century Avenue.

Police say the girl told them that she was outside her apartment playing with her 1-year-old sister when a man in a black T-shirt and baseball hat wearing a full ski-type mask came up to them.

This man led her and her sister away, but the girl told police she was eventually able to get away, with her sister, several blocks away.

The girls are now home safe.

Anyone who may have been in the 5300 block of Century Avenue, or nearby Highland Way, between 10:30 AM and 11:45 AM today is encouraged to contact the Middleton Police Department if they saw a young girl carrying a 1-year old and walking with an adult man.

The girl also described an interaction with a person on a bicycle on Highland Way while she was with the suspect.

Detectives would like to speak to that person.

More details will be released as they become available.
