Detectives within the Violent Crimes Section of the Colorado Springs Police Department are seeking the public’s help in identifying the suspect of an attempted kidnapping.


The suspect attempted to kidnap a 50 year old female from the open space area near N. Union Blvd and Briargate Parkway on October 28, 2013 at 4:30 pm.  The victim shared that the suspect had what appeared to be a semi automatic handgun.


The victim was able to escape without injury and advised police that the suspect identified himself to her as “MARIO” and stated that he was 23 years old.   


The victim described the suspect as a white or light skinned Hispanic male, 20-25 years old, 5’7”, 170 pounds, stocky wearing a multi colored flannel coat, dark undershirt, blue jeans and having a small patch of hair underneath his bottom lip.


Attached are photos that investigators were able to secure from a surveillance camera near the scene.  The male in the photos is believed to be Mario.
