Police Arrest Suspect In Brazen Attempted Kidnapping

(Portland, OR) -- A suspect is behind bars in connection to a brazen attempted kidnapping captured on surveillance video in the Pearl District. Portland Police say someone spotted 30-year-old suspect Erick Alexander yesterday and called 911. Police arrested him for Kidnapping in the Second Degree. Police say a man was walking near The Fields Park with his six-year-old son early last week when Alexander walked up and grabbed the boy. The father fought the man off and freed his son, prompting Alexander to run away. Detectives have been able to connect Alexander to four other instances which occurred the day before and the day after the kidnapping, in which members of the community were troubled enough by his behavior that they called 911.
