Today’s Midweek Special focuses on Kidnapping and Public Indecency which took place in Dublin.
On Sunday, March 8, 2020, just after 11:30pm, an unidentified suspect drove his early 2000’s two-toned Subaru Outback into the parking lot of the Sawmill Road Kroger. The suspect parked to the left of the female victim’s vehicle. The suspect moved from the driver’s seat to the front passenger seat. The suspect opened the door and exposed and fondled himself while looking at the victim. The suspect exited his vehicle, still exposing himself, and approached the driver door of the victim’s vehicle. The victim exited her vehicle and spoke with the suspect, who demanded she get into his vehicle. The victim refused, at which point the suspect leaned into his vehicle and retrieved what the victim believed was a firearm. After talking to the suspect for several minutes, she fled into the store. The suspect pursued her through the lot, instructed her not to tell anyone, and fled to his vehicle once she entered the store.
The suspect appears to be a male with a dark complexion, wearing a dark hooded sweatshirt with white lettering. The letting appears to spell out “OCW” or similar. Surveillance photos of the suspect may be viewed on our website, www.stopcrime.org.
