Attempted Newport kidnapping
Newport authorities are looking for an older, beat-up, black Jeep reportedly involved in a Thursday evening attempted kidnapping incident on Melton Road. April Minor told Patrol Officer Jonathan Ball that her 10 year-old daughter was walking her dog just before 9 pm, when an older man believed to be 50 to 60 years old, stopped on the street and asked the girl if she wanted candy. “The girl told the man she didn't want any candy that she wasn't stupid,” the officer said. The would-be assailant then grabbed the child's dog, but the girl told him to let go of the animal. During the struggle for the dog, the girl says she fell to the ground. The man grabbed her arm and attempted to pull her into his vehicle. At that point, another dog appeared and began biting on the leg of the man, at which time the girl says she was able to free herself. She ran behind her home and hid until the man drove away. The victim says there was a skull on the spare tire cover of the vehicle.
