My friend came home tonight terrified and told me that she had just run home after being pursued by a man who tried to get her in his car. I thought the community of Lacey, WA and Olympia, WA should know about this so we can catch the guy who tried to take her.
“Walking home from work at 11PM. Guy tries to get me into his car. He was parked in a dark parking lot. He yelled at me when I walked by, ‘Hey! Come here! Come here!’ I yelled ‘No!’ and ran. As I’m running he drove alongside me and yelled “Get in! Come here!”. I screamed at the top of my lungs ‘NO!’ and he drove off. Probably scared that I was making loud noises near some businesses/houses.
I ran home, scared out of my mind, until I couldn’t breathe anymore. Thankfully made it, hands are still shaking, still can’t breathe.
This is the 5th time in my life—from my childhood till now—Someone has tried to kidnap me. Apparently I can’t even walk a quarter of a fucking mile without being harassed.”
Hollaback community, keep your eyes out for a small, white compact vehicle in the Lacey area loitering around in any dark spots in parking lots for a long time. From what she could see of the driver in the dark, he was wearing a backward baseball cap and had dark hair and spoke with a light accent. Keep aware and if something seems off, say something. The number for Oly police is 360.704.2740.
