EPS Information Release: Police Make an Arrest in Possible Kidnapping
Edina Public Schools was informed by the Edina Police Department of a possible kidnapping involving elementary age students in the Concord neighborhood the afternoon of April 14th. The involved students are all safe. The police did arrest and placed a 21 year old male in custody soon after the incident occurred. He remains in custody pending charges.
The district continues to work with the police department on this matter and will share more information as it becomes available. Families are reminded again to make their children aware of the importance of knowing how to respond to strangers and staying safe.
On a personal note...we know the child that was approached. She did an amazing job at handling the situation! It reminded my family and I that although we feel safe, and in the bubble....we are still very vulnerable to the world! Heads up to all us parents and care givers!
