Possible abduction attempt in Kossuth County

The Kossuth County Sheriff’s Office is encouraging people to exercise caution outdoors, after a report of a possible abduction attempt in northeastern Kossuth County on Sunday, April 11.

Authorities say a 14-year-old female reported that a white male, wearing a mask and driving a blue van, approached her on a gravel road at about 10:30 a.m. Sunday. The girl reportedly threw her bike at the man and sprayed him with pepper spray. She reported that the suspect then left in his van.

The Kossuth County Sheriff says no other counties have reported a similar situation. The Sheriff’s Office reminds citizens to exercise caution when outside in the nice spring weather and to immediately report anything strange to law enforcement.
