Police: Stranger tries to get into car with unattended child

SEATTLE -- In what is possibly the second attempted child abduction in Queen Anne in two days, a man tried to get into a car with a 4-year-old boy left alone by his mother Monday, according to the Seattle Police Department.

According to police, the boy's mother left him in the car while she walked her daughter to Coe Elementary School around 9 a.m. When she got back to the car, she saw a man quickly walking away but didn't realize anything was wrong.

The woman got in the car, and her son told her the man had tried to get into the car through all four doors.

According to police, the man got into a bright, shiny, red Pontiac Grand Am and drove off. The woman tried to follow the man but lost him.

Officers were unable to find the man, and other neighborhood schools were notified.

The man is described as Hispanic with a light complexion, 25 to 32 years old, 5-foot-9-inches to 5-foot-10-inches tall, very thin and with a shaved head. He was wearing a white T-shirt and blue jeans.

On Sunday morning, a man tried to grab a child at the Komen Race for the Cure in Queen Anne. He was later arrested.
