Police are searching for a suspect wanted in two attempted abductions in the Bronx. A sketch has been released of the suspect, described as a black male in his 40s, approximately 5-foot-10 and wearing a gray cap, blue jacket, blue jeans and yellow construction boots. In both instances, police say the man approaches the victims, grabs them by the arm, produces a firearm and attempts to abduct them.

Both incidents happened on Monday. The first occurred at around 6:45 a.m. at East Gun Hill Road and Dewitt Place. A 20-year-old woman was approached and the suspect attempted to pull her to an unknown location, according to authorities.

At approximately 8 a.m. that morning, at Bruner and Bartow avenues, police say a 15-year-old was approached and the suspect attempted to pull her into a gray vehicle.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crimestoppers at (800) 577-TIPS (8477). All calls are strictly confidential. The public can also text their tips to CRIMES (274637), then enter TIP577.
