A Penrose family is shaken up after a young boy was nearly kidnapped Friday night. It happened around 7:30 PM on the 600 block of K Street in Penrose. 11-year-old Mathia Moses was riding his bike home from a friend's house when he says a pick-up truck stopped right in front of him and the driver jumped out.
"He grabbed the watch on my left arm, started pulling me and I jerked away," said Moses, who rode home as fast as he could. His mother, Beverly Moses, still can't believe what happened.
"He was shaking so bad," said Moses. "The only thing he could get out was, 'a man in a truck grabbed me!'"
Mathia Moses says he recognized the suspect. He says during the spring, he saw him peeking into the family's basement window, further concerning Mathia's mother.
"I feel like we're being stalked, watched."
The suspect is described as a Hispanic male in his mid-20s with a medium build. He has dark brown hair that was cut into a flat-top with bangs in the front. The suspect was driving a dark green extended cab Dodge pickup truck with very dark tinted windows and windshield featuring white Dodge Ram decals. The truck had no license plates. If you have any information on the suspect or his vehicle, call the Fremont County Sheriff's Office at 719-276-5555.
