Everett police: 5-year old girl safe after early morning abduction

Everett Child Abduction

Everett police located a 5-year old girl who they believe was abducted from her bedroom early Saturday morning.  Everett police spokesman Aaron Snell said a resident called 911 around 4:30 a.m. to report the child had knocked on their door in the 1300 boock of Bruskrud Road.  Police responded to the home and found the girl, not fully clothed, and took custody of her.

Snell said that about an hour later, police got a call from another home reporting a suspicious circumstance.  Police responded to the apartment, in the 800 block of 112th Street SE, and the resident reported a missing screen and an open window.  Officers soon discovered that the resident’s 5-year old daughter was missing.

Police soon pieced together a connection between the two locations, and the missing 5-year old girl.  Officers, along with a canine, searched along the Interurban Trail, from 112th Street SE to Bruskrud Road.  Police did find some items of evidence, according to Snell.

At this time, detectives believe that the girl was taken from her room by a stranger.  It appears that there was intent, but no sexual assault occured, Snell said.  The girl was taken to the hospital for a medical evaluation.

The girl described the suspect who took her as a male with dark skin, short in height, wearing jeans, a shirt, a white hat and white earrings, Snell said.

Anyone living near, or was on, the Interurban Trail in the early morning hours between 112th St SE and Everett Mall and saw or heard something suspicious, is asked to call 911 or the Everett Police Department TIP LINE at (425) 257-8450.

    Here in Delaware, where we have a multi-cultural and mostly liberal population… our newspapers still have the cojones to say whether the suspect is black or Latino. "Dark skinned" doesn't cut it. Are we looking for a short black dude, a Latino or an Indian? A Native American? A Pacific Islander?
