Schoolgirl, 8, reports apparent abduction try

September 09, 1994

An Eastport schoolgirl may have been the target of an abduction attempt Wednesday, police said.

The 8-year-old girl told police that as she was walking home from school a man approached her at Bay Ridge Avenue and Adams Street, pinched her on the arm, and tried to draw her toward him.

The girl said she screamed, and the man ran toward Bay Ridge Avenue.

On Aug. 31, a 7-year-old Eastport girl told police that a man tried to abduct her as she walked near Chesapeake Avenue and Fourth Street after school.

In that incident, which occurred seven blocks from Wednesday's incident, the man picked up the girl, but she was able to escape and run home.

Police spokeswoman Shelly White said investigators have not

established whether the incidents are related.

Police dog finds youths suspected of burglary

Three Washington juveniles were arrested yesterday morning and charged with burglary and theft after a dog from the county police K-9 unit ferreted them out of their hiding places on Riva Road, authorities said.

The three boys -- ages 12, 14 and 16 -- have been charged as juveniles, police spokesman Randy Bell said. Two were treated at Anne Arundel Medical Center and released after the police dog bit them, police said.

The youths are accused of stealing a station wagon in Washington and abandoning it in Davidsonville.

They also are accused of breaking into a woman's home in the 1100 block of Rutlandview Drive and stealing her purse and van. Officers found the van in the Riva Commons parking lot shortly after 3 a.m., police said.

The officers went to the lot when they received a call about people tampering with vehicles. They searched the area with Bubba, a dog from the K-9 unit, and found the 14-year-old boy hiding in some bushes. They found the other two boys hiding under the stairs of a house in the 2500 block of Riva Road, police said.
