EUGENE, Ore. — Eugene police released the sketch of a man who tried to abduct a girl from a north Eugene elementary school this week.

The incident Monday was the second attack reported on school grounds in the past month.

School administrators and police have been working to catch the person responsible for the incident at the Yujin Gakuen Japanese Immersion Elementary School on Silver Lane.

The suspect is described as a white man, 17 or 18 years of age. He has a slim build with muscles and stands about 5’6” to 5’10”. He may also have some acne on his chin, nose and forehead.

The current description’s younger age has folks wondering what this could mean for the person caught.

“Regardless of whether or not the suspect is an adult or a juvenile, the dangers are still the same, and so it would be treated just the same,” said Melinda McLaughlin, EPD spokeswoman.

4J says it also got the sketch Thursday and immediately worked on distributing the sketch to its schools.

Police say since they just released the sketch, they don’t have any leads at this time.

If you have any information on this case, call the Eugene Police Department at 541-682-5111 and ask for Officer Renee Tobler.

    If they catch him they should throw the book at him. make him spend 3 nights in jail before his early release instead of the usual 2.
