Douglas County deputies are looking for the woman who allegedly attempted to abduct a two-year-old from Brookhaven Park, near 110th and Harrison.

According to investigators, a woman approached a mother, on October 19, and asked if she could hold the mother's son. The mother said, "No."

A short time later, the mother said the woman grabbed her son as he slid down the slide. The woman tried to leave the park, but the mom punched her and grabbed her son. The woman was last seen running from the park.

The mother told deputies she was then approached by a man who claimed the same woman attempted to abduct his child. Deputies were unable to confirm the man's claim because the mother left the park and did not get his contact information.

The Woman is described as white, 5'2, dark auburn hair, wearing a black jacket, and jeans.

A sketch artist is working on a drawing of the suspect, that will be published, as soon as it is received by WOWT 6 News. The mother said it appeared the suspect had been drinking. She may have an injury to her left cheek, where she was hit.

Anyone with information is asked to call 402-444-6000.
