Incidents In Spokane Valley Possibly Related

Posted 4/4/2014 4:45 PM by MDGREGORY

Yesterday, April 3rd, 2014, at about 6:00 p.m., a 12-year-old female was walking home from Opportunity Elementary on 10th Ave. when a pickup truck pulled up next to her by the sidewalk. The victim said the truck was a newer, full size dark blue truck. The victim said the driver, who she described as a white male in his early thirties, stocky build with a dirty blonde beard, asked her how she was doing.

The victim was extremely startled due to an incident that happened on Saturday night, March 29th. The victim said she and her 10-yr-old friend were having a sleepover in their family’s camp trailer next to her house. She said they looked out the window and saw a male looking inside the trailer. She said the man standing outside the window was the same man that pulled up next to her in the truck. She said the man knocked on the trailer door and tried to open it. She said she called her mom and dad on her cell phone and when her dad came outside, the suspect was gone. The victim’s father said all three of them went inside the house and no more than a minute later, they heard a loud knock on the front door. The father said he opened the door and was not able to locate anyone.

The victim said after the suspect pulled up next to her in his truck and spoke to her, she yelled at him to leave her alone and ran to a neighbor’s yard. She said the suspect drove up to the front of the neighbor’s yard, placed a handgun on the dashboard and told her to calm down. The victim told the suspect to leave her alone multiple times as he was telling her to calm down. The suspect eventually drove away eastbound on 10th Avenue from the scene.

Anyone who may have seen this truck or suspect in the area of Opportunity Elementary matching the listed descriptions is urged to call Crime Check at 509-456-2233.
