Boston police are seeking the public’s help in identifying the suspect in an attempted abduction of a 12-year-old girl in Roxbury Thursday morning.
Police have released surveillance videos of a man driving a silver Volvo sedan in the area of Dudley and Shirley streets.
The girl was kidnapped at knifepoint by a man claiming to be named “Kevin” or “Calvin.” The girl escaped the man’s car near Dudley and Dearborn streets and ran to Timilty Middle School, police said.
The suspect is described as a dark-skinned black man in his 20s, thin build, with braided hair under a hat, wearing a gray sweatshirt, blue jeans, and a dark cap, police said.
The Volvo had a large laundry basket in the back seat, police said.
The girl was not injured, police said.
Police asked anyone with information to call detectives at 617-343-4275 or to call 911 if they see a suspicious person in the area.
