On July 24, 2022, the Snoqualmie Police Department responded to a possible attempted child luring incident at Torguson Park, located at 750 E North Bend Way in North Bend, WA.
A mother called 911 to report that a suspicious male subject in the park attempted to have her five-year-old son walk away with him after offering him a water gun. Bystanders intervened, and the male suspect left the area on a bicycle.
The witness was able to provide a very accurate description of the suspect to police officers, and an investigation was launched. With the assistance of an alert North Bend citizen, the Snoqualmie Police Department arrested a suspect in this incident on Wednesday, August 24, 2022. He was booked into jail for Attempted Child Luring.
"Without the quick actions of the witness, and the help of a citizen who recognized the subject riding his bicycle near Si View Park, this case likely would have a very different conclusion," said SPD Captain Brian Lynch. "We are grateful for the public's assistance."
