KCSO Still Searching for Attempted Child Abduction Suspects, Asking for Video Footage

Thursday, 01 February 2018
The Knox County Sheriffs Office is still searching for three suspects involved in yesterday's attempted child abduction and is asking for anyone with surveillance footage to contact its Major Crimes Unit. The victim was interviewed again today. The updated suspect descriptions include: The first suspect is described as a Hispanic male, approximately 20-30-years-old, 53"-56", 130-140 pounds, with a medium build, a medium complexion, short black hair (similar to a "high and tight" cut), and black eyes. He was wearing a white t-shirt and blue jeans, and had a cut over his left eye. The second suspect is described as a Hispanic male, approximately 30-40-years-old, 150-170 pounds, with a stocky build, a dark complexion, black hair, and a full beard. He was wearing a blue jean jacket with red flames on the back and grey jeans. The third suspect is described as a Hispanic male with black hair. The suspects fled in what is described as a white sedan (possibly a Nissan) with a black or grey hood, a red drivers side rear door, and a red trunk. The car had a loud exhaust and black rims. Around 2:30 p.m. on Wednesday, a woman reported that three Hispanic males grabbed her infant child in the parking lot of Walker Springs Apartments, located at 721 Walker Springs Road, in an attempt to take the infant. The mother resisted and retained her child. The womans personal belongings, including her wallet, were taken during the struggle. The investigation indicates that the suspects may have traveled from Walker Springs Apartments to the I-40 westbound ramp at Bridgewater Road. Anyone who has surveillance footage between those areas taken between 1:15 and 2:15 p.m. yesterday (as well as anyone with any information) is asked to contact KCSO's Major Crimes Unit at (865) 215-2243.
