Eric Kunkel from Wright County Sheriff's Office was on hand at Tuesday night's Albertville council meeting to give members and participants a brief update on Saturday's attempted abduction in the community.
"The incident has been assigned to the criminal investigation department, and anyone who sees anything suspicious is encouraged to call," Kunkel said.
Over the weekend, Wright County Sheriff's Office confirmed that an attempted abduction took place in Albertville Saturday night. A 15-year-old girl reported that two men asked her to get into their van.
The van was described as an off-white or greyish colored, older conversion van with a sliding side door and dark colored windows. The driver was reported to be an older, heavy set, bald white male wearing a black sweatshirt. The passenger was believed to be a skinny, tall white male possibly in his 20's wearing a grey sweatshirt and blue jeans.
Kunkel added Monday night that the driver is said to also described as having red eyebrows, and the van had a spare tire on the back, withall four road tires sticking out past the wheel well.
"The suspect descriptions do not match the St. Michael incident reported in late July," Kunkel said, putting rumors that the two were connected to rest.
Kunkel said he will keep the city informed of any updates that come up.
In the meantime, council member Jillian Hendrickson noted that she has noticed extra patrols in Albertville.
