SPARTA, Wis. (MONROE COUNTY SHERIFF'S OFFICE NEWS RELEASE) -- The Monroe County Sheriff’s Office is reporting a hit and run crash between two vehicles and an attempted kidnapping. There were no injuries as a result of the hit and run matter. The matter occurred on 09-09-13 around 6:00 A.M. on Co Hwy O just north of Destiny Ave. in the Township of Lincoln. The suspect vehicle is a lighter colored Ford Taurus which fled the scene (this would be estimated as a 1996 to 1999 model range). The vehicle should have damage to the passenger’s side of the vehicle. There might be a dark colored paint transfer on the suspect vehicle from the vehicle it struck.
The driver of the suspect vehicle, is described as a white male, possibly age 18 to 25, with short spiky hair. The suspect was also described as wearing a white, zip up type, hooded sweatshirt, blue jeans and boots. After the collision occurred the male suspect attempted to force the driver (adult female) of the other vehicle into his car (attempted kidnapping). The victim was able to escape the suspect and she summoned help from another vehicle that came by (she initially ran to a nearby house to get help but no one answered the door).
The Tomah Police Department took a stolen vehicle report while Monroe County Sheriff’s Office was investigating this matter. The description of the Tomah Police Department stolen vehicle, is similar to the description of the vehicle involved in this incident. The stolen vehicle that the Tomah Police Department had was recovered later in the afternoon, after this incident occurred (same date). The Sheriff’s Office believes that the stolen vehicle that Tomah PD recovered is probably the same vehicle involved in this incident.
There was another incident that occurred on 09-09-13 at approximately 4:30 A.M. where a female said that a person in a vehicle described like the suspect vehicle, from this matter, had pulled in behind her (at an address she was at), wanting directions and then wanted her to show him where. That female was afraid of the male, told him no, and walked into the residence she was at (on Flicker Rd, West of the City of Tomah). The male made a sexual comment to the female as she was walking away from the male and then he left. It is unknown if these matters are related, but vehicle description was similar.
