Bonney Lake police have stepped up patrols after a man tried to abduct a teenage girl Friday morning as she waited for her school bus on Angeline Road East.

Bonney Lake police have no leads and made no arrests in the case, the department reported this afternoon.

The 17-year-old girl told police she was sitting on a bench in the 11300 block of Angeline Road East shortly before 7:10 a.m. Friday when she was approached by a man, police reported.

The suspect grabbed the girl from behind and told her to come with him.

The girl hit and kicked the suspect. The suspect left the area when another student walked up to the bus stop, police reported.

The victim waited for the bus, then reported what happened to the driver. The school district was notified and police were called.

The suspect was described as white, in his 30s and 6 feet tall with a heavy build, police reported. He wore dark clothing during the incident.

Officers searched the area but didn’t find anyone matching the suspect’s description.

Anyone with information on the incident is asked to call Bonney Lake police at 253-863-2218.

  1. I have a child at this bus stop. My wife was the first adult to interact with the teenager after it occurred.

    If you are a parent of a child at this stop and feel the stop doesn’t meet safety requirements, please meet at the bus stop this Friday November 11 at 9am or 5pm to discuss options such as parental presence at the stop or requesting the location be reevaluated.
