Jefferson County SO trying to ID attempted child kidnapper

JEFFERSON COUNTY, Colo. - The Jefferson County Sheriff's Office needs the public's help in identifying a man that tried to kidnap an 11-year-old boy in Ken Caryl, Colo. 

Ken Caryl is located southwest of Littleton, Colo. 

On Tuesday at around 5:15 p.m., the suspect walked up to the boy in the area of W. Chatfield Avenue and S. Kipling Parkway and offered to give him a ride. When the boy told him no, the man claimed he had seen the boy before and tried to offer a ride a second time. Again, the boy refused and started running until he reached his home. 

The 11-year-old described the suspect as being white and standing 5'10"- 6' tall. He had a medium build, red hair, and was wearing a green jacket, blue t-shirt, and jeans. 

The boy said he was older because he had "a lot of wrinkles" on his face. 

The sketch above was developed from the boy's descriptions. 

If you recognize this individual or have any information about this incident, please call the Sheriff’s Office tip line at (303) 271-5612, or Metro Denver Crime Stoppers at (720) 913-STOP (7867); reference case number 18-152.
