Hendricks County Sheriff's Office investigating report of attempted confinement of teenage girl

Authorities in Hendricks County are trying to identify a man from a reported possible attempted confinement of a teenage girl.


On Saturday, June 18, around 9:20 pm, Hendricks County Sheriff’s deputies responded to a report,  “Trouble with a Person” that occurred on the B&O trail north of the Wynbrooke subdivision near 21st St. and Raceway Road in Avon. 


According to the report, a 17 year old girl was walking alone on the trail when she was approached by four unidentified males. The initial investigation indicates that one of the males, described as Hispanic and about 30 years old, attempted to talk to the teen, expressing a romantic interest in her.   The girl walked westward with the man for an undetermined period of time, but then turned around to go back eastbound on the trail, from where she had originally come. 


When the man attempted to kiss the girl, she fled on foot. He then caught up with her and held onto her hand, attempting to get her to come back with him on the trail.  The girl pulled away from the man and continued running away from the trail.  The man was last seen walking westbound on the trail toward Ronald Reagan Blvd.   


Hendricks County Detectives are attempting to identify the man involved in this incident.  If anyone recognizes this man, please contact Det. Sgt. Charles Tyree at 317.745.9354. 


The B&O Trail entrance nearest the incident is located in the 10700 block of Northern Dancer Dr.  Detectives are asking all residents in that area to please review their outdoor surveillance cameras, between 7pm and 9 pm on June 18, for any activity that might be related to this incident.  If you locate any relevant surveillance footage, you are asked that you contact Sgt. Tyree. 


The Hendricks County Sheriffs Office also encourages people who use the trails for fitness to travel in groups, especially during the evening hours, and to report any suspicious activity to local police.
