**Official Press Release From Spokane Valley Police Department**

SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash. - Spokane Valley Officers responded to a possible child abduction near the 18900 block of East Sprague in the City of The Valley Wednesday afternoon.  At 4:20 p.m., Officer K. Dodge contacted the complainant who told him she had been in the back yard with her two children.  The yard is completely enclosed with a cyclone fence and is well off Sprague Ave. 

The complainant told Deputy Dodge she walked inside the house and saw her four year old son run towards the west side of the backyard fence.  She did not have a view of this area and figured her son was talking to other children.  She walked outside and saw a white male standing on the other side of the fence with both arms extended over the fence.  She said her son was about two feet away when she picked him up and asked the suspect what he was doing.  He replied he was picking her son up like he requested.  As she walked inside to call police she heard the suspect mention he saw she had another child.

The complainant described the suspect as a white male wearing a red fleece sweatshirt, 30 yrs old, clean cut with a bowl style cut.  The complainant said when she walked inside to call police she saw the suspect run through her front yard and continue running eastbound on Sprague.  Anyone with any information to the identity of the suspect is asked to call Crime Check at (509)456-2233.
