KCSO Investigates Attempted Kidnapping Claim

Saturday, 03 February 2018

The Knox County Sheriff’s Office Major Crimes Unit investigated a claim of an attempted abduction of a teenage girl at an Emory Road gas station on January 30.  The investigation determined that was not the case.  The teen was approached by the male suspect as she was pumping gas at the Weigels on East Emory Road.  He asked for money and for her to accompany him to his allegedly disabled vehicle that was somewhere else.  The girl said she felt threatened.  The surveillance video shows that the suspect did not physically assault her or prevent her from leaving. The suspect is known to law enforcement and to area businesses as a habitual panhandler.
