Laconia police searching for man who tried to abduct woman near WOW Trail

LACONIA - Police are looking for a man they say tried to abduct a woman near the WOW Trail on Tuesday night.

At about 9 p.m., a 20-year-old woman was riding her bicycle near Messer Street.

Police said she was approached by a Hispanic man driving an older red Chevy work-type van, and then knocked off the bike after telling him her name.

She was able to get away from the man and hide in the woods after he tried to grab her arm, police said.

He is between 5’6” to 5’8”, stocky, short hair, with a goatee, wearing a white tank top, dark shorts. He is also believed to have a tattoo of a lion or tiger on his forearm.

The woman said she thinks he lives in Concord.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Laconia Police Department at (603) 524-5252.
