SPOKANE COUNTY, Wash. - On Friday, Spokane County Sheriff's Office Major Crime Detectives arrested a 38-year-old man for felony Kidnapping with Sexual Motivation, and now they are looking to identify any additional victims. 

Konstantin A. Sergienko was arrested as a possible suspect in three additional child luring incidents, but detectives think there may be additional victims who have not yet come forward. 

Sergienko was arrested four days after the Sheriff's Office released information asking citizens to help identify a man who was reportedly trying to lure young women into his car. All of the lurings took place in the same area in Spokane Valley in the 13000 blocks of East Broadway and East Mission near Barker High School, and all of the suspect descriptions were similar. The day after releasing information to the public, Detectives made contact with Sergienko, and victims were able to identify him using photo lineups. 

During their investigation, detectives also learned of a similar incident that happened a year earlier in north Spokane near Francis and Crestline on September 12, 2013. A 17-year-old girl told police she was approached by a man matching Sergienko's description at a bus stop around 8:00 p.m. The man began speaking to her in Russian. The victim said she could not understand him, had a bad feeling about him and said he needed leave. The suspect then began rubbing the victim's arm and stated his vehicle was close by and they could "go and make babies." The victim told police she then turned to walk away and the man grabbed her arm, started to pull and said, "No you can come to my car." Eventually the girl punched the man in the face and ran away. The victim in this incident also picked out Sergienko in a lineup. 

Based on their investigation, detectives believe Sergienko is a danger to the public and that there are additional victims who have not yet been identified. If you have been a victim of a similar incident, have additional information about the most recent incidents, or Sergienko himself, you are asked to call Detective Kirk Keyser at 509-477-6611.
