Police in Pennsylvania, New Jersey seek man in attempted abductions 

Investigators believe a man who allegedly tried to kidnap a woman at an apartment building in Bala Cynwyd is the same suspect wanted for two attempted abductions at an apartment complex in Cherry Hill.

Lower Merion Township police said the suspect pressed an object into a woman’s back at the Royal Athena Apartment Complex on Nov. 4 and said, “You know what this is?”

The woman was able to get away.

On Nov. 14 at the Plaza Grande Apartments in Cherry Hill, police believe the same suspect approached a woman in the garage and knocked her to the ground. Police say she screamed and the suspect ran off.

Less than a week later, police say the man attempted to kidnap a woman at gunpoint after getting on an elevator in the lobby of the 300 building at Plaza Grande.

Police said once inside the elevator the suspect took the woman's bags and forced her through the lobby and into the parking garage. The suspect opened his trunk and threatened to shoot the woman if she did not get inside.

When the victim refused, police say the suspect struck her with his gun.  The woman was able to break free from his grasp and run to safety. The suspect was last seen driving a dark-colored sedan on Garden Park Drive.

Police believe the suspect is driving a black Nissan Altima with Pennsylvania license plates.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Sorrentino #372 at 856-432-8825 or asorrentino@cherryhillpolice.com.
