Attempted Kidnapping Of Child

[Hat tip to The Watcher.]

The Minneapolis Police have issued a Crime Alert following an attempted abduction of a child in the Linden Hills area, near Lake Harriet. This crime follows the trend of crime in Minneapolis migrating to areas once considered safe, which Linden Hills certainly was.

As most locals know, Linden Hills is rife with smug liberals who normally wouldn't give a second thought to major crimes occurring in other parts of the city, for example, in North Minneapolis.

Now, however, it's coming to them.

Criminals ultimately know no boundaries.

Here's the MPD dispatch:

Linden Hills Neighborhood June 26, 2006


On June 1 at about 2:40 a.m., there was an attempted kidnapping on the 43xx block of Abbott Ave. S. Officers responded. The suspect was gone upon the officers’ arrival; the child was not injured.

This is a reported attempted abduction of a child. We are still actively investigating this case so we cannot give out specific incident information at this time.

Suspect information:

The suspect was described as a 40-year-old, white male with a light build and unshaven facial hair. He was wearing gloves, a black hat and a black leather coat.
My question is: Why are we just finding out now about a 6/1/06 abduction attempt?
