Public Help Sought
On November 14, 2016 at 1:32 PM, Monterey Police Officers responded to a report of an attempted child abduction at the Monterey Library, 625 Pacific Street. Two siblings, ages eight and six, reported an adult male attempted to lure the children into his vehicle, which was parked in front of the library. The children fled to Monterey High School where they reported the incident to a staff member.
The suspect was described as a Hispanic male adult of middle age, with shoulder length white hair and a long white beard. He had a tattoo of a rose on his neck and wore several bracelets and rings on both hands. The male was last seen driving toward Larkin Street in a newer model white coupe, possibly with black graphics on the door panels, which had damage to the interior seating surfaces.
Anyone who may have seen anything or may have information about this case is asked to call Detective Sergeant Blair with the MPD Investigations Division at 831-646-3814, the MPD General Number at 831-646-3830, or the confidential tip line at 831-646-3840.
