Boy tells Fairfax police he was abducted, thrown in van
A 12-year-old boy was briefly abducted last week in the Oakton area by two men in a black van, Fairfax police said Tuesday.
It happened at about 6 p.m. Thursday as the boy walked in the 2900 block of Palmer Street. A black van drove up to him, two men got out, grabbed him and threw him
into the van, police said. The suspects then drove around for about 30 minutes before forcing the boy out of the van in the area of Interstate 66 and Chain Bridge Road.
The child was not injured, police said.
The van is described as full-size, matte black with a sliding door on the driver side. The van had no markings and no windows on the sides or rear.
Police ask anyone with information about the case to contact Crime Solvers at 866-411-TIPS/8477 or e-mail at www.fairfaxcrimesolvers.org.
