What the heck is going on? KARE 11 reports authorities are investigating three separate abduction cases in the Twin Cities metro area spanning Friday, July 27 through Monday, July 29.

This makes my blood boil! One or more people are out there preying on Minnesota children. Luckily the children were able to get away in each of the three reported cases.

This serves as an important reminder to keep an even closer eye on your children, especially with county fair season underway and summer in full force. Now is the time when kids spend time at friend's homes. You should know where your kids are at all times and talk to them about what to do if they're approached by a stranger. It could absolutely save their lives.


All three cases involve different suspect descriptions. In a press release, the Anoka County Sheriff's Office says they made an arrest in the case from Friday which happened in Fridley. Police arrested 28-year-old Aaron Daniel Johnson of Coon Rapids in connection with the attempted abduction.

The press release says Johnson tried to pull a 7-year-old girl into his vehicle but she was able to break free and run away.

Police are still looking for two other possible suspects connected to the Inver Grove Heights and Mounds View attempted abductions. The suspect description was different in these two cases from the incident in Fridley.

If you have any information regarding the attempted abductions or need to report another incident you're asked to contact your local law enforcement office immediately. You can reach the Anoka County Sheriff's Office at 763-427-1212.
