Kidnapping Adds To List of Unsolved Northwest Arkansas Crimes | Crime
Fayetteville police are still searching for a man they say kidnapped a woman and threatened her with a bomb. The suspect is just one more added to a growing list of unsolved violent crimes in Northwest Arkansas. While they don't have a suspect yet, Sgt. Craig Stout says they have a more detailed description, and tips are coming in.
Sgt. Craig Stout says, “We've had at least a couple of calls come in as to the possible identity of the person that may be responsible and our detectives are actively looking after that.”
This isn’t the only suspect police are searching for in an unsolved violent crime. Officers are still trying to find one of three men involved in a home invasion last November leaving one of the intruders dead. Stout says detectives have narrowed in on a suspect.
“We are very positive in the fact that we will make an arrest later on,” says Sgt. Stout. “But just at this point we may not have enough evidence to go ahead and make that arrest.”
Sgt. Stout says even though weeks have passed, he's still confident.
It’s not just Fayetteville police that are trying to wrap up these unsolved crimes. In Rogers, police officers are trying to do the same thing.
Rogers police officers are still looking for a man who ran down a Springdale man with a truck. Officers say they have a good idea who's responsible, but are still collecting clues.
Rogers Public Information Officer Keith Foster says, “What you know and what you can prove are always two different things and so we can know who did it, its building up the evidence to be able to prove once they go to court to say this is the one that did it.”
When it comes to closing in on these cases, officers say they rely on the public for help.
Foster says, “Members of the community calling in with tips and hey I saw this. I always say it’s kind of like putting a puzzle together and you never know which piece is going to be the piece that solves the whole thing.”
