OKLAHOMA CITY -- Oklahoma City Police are widening the search for an alleged child molester on the loose in the metro area. They now have two additional cases that may be related to Thursday's abduction and molestation of a 12-year-old girl.
The young girl was abducted by gunpoint while walking to school in the 2800 block of Brookline, taken to an unknown location where she was molested. The girl was then returned to an area near the place she had been picked up.
In the course of their investigation, Oklahoma City police found two cases that may be related to Thursday's crime.
One is from September 29, and the other incident took place April 16. In both incidents, young girls were abducted on their way to or from school, taken in a car and molested. One victim described the child snatcher as a white male, about 6 feet tall, average build in his 30s. She described his vehicle as a newer model tan car with tan interior.
The other victim described the vehicle she was abducted in as a silver or dull gray, four-door sedan with tinted windows.
The suspect had a silver gun in the September abduction. The girl that was abducted in April said the man who took her had a pocket knife. One abduction took place on NW 17th Street, the other near SW 59th Street and South Blackwelder Avenue.
The Oklahoma City Police Department has set up a special phone line to take tips on these cases. It is (405) 297-1500.
