10-year-old Richmond girl speaks out about attempted abduction

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) -

Richmond police are looking for a man after reports he tried to abduct a 10-year-old girl in the Greater Fulton neighborhood.

The girl was walking from her house to the pool in the 1100 block of Apperson Street, when a man tried several times to get her into his gray mini-van. The girl was able to make it to the Powhatan Pool safely, where she told others about the abduction attempt.

"I think there are some really sick people out there," said the victim's mother Stacey Winters. "I really do."

Police are now searching for the suspect. Police have a vague description at this point. He is described as a man in his 50s with a light complexion. He is bald, with gray hair on the sides of his head.

"We have increased patrols," said Lt. Daniel Minton with the Richmond Police Department. "We are asking for the public's help. Somebody knows this guy. They have seen him around."

We spoke to the young child victim.

"I got scared and thought that if he does get me I've got a little brother looking out for me," said little Inka Winters.

Inka was walking with her little 8-year-old brother. She has a message for the suspect.

"Right now I would say you are lucky you didn't meet my mother first," said Inka of the suspect.

The family's initial fear has now turned to anger.

"I want to find this guy. I want to show this guy who I am," said Winters. "My 16 year old son basically ran down here because he thought the guy was still around. He wanted to beat his butt."

Call Crime Stoppers at 780-1000 if you have any information.
