Prince George’s County Police officers spotted and arrested the man who tried to kidnap two females in separate incidents on Tuesday in Fort Washington. He is 42-year-old Abdul Fuller of the 1800 block of Whistling Duck Drive in Upper Marlboro. Fuller and the victims did not know each other.

On October 29th, 2019 at approximately 2:00 pm, the suspect targeted the first victim, an adult female, as she walked along Stonesboro Road. The preliminary investigation reveals he grabbed her from behind, put her in a chokehold and tried to force her into his green 1998 Ford Expedition. The victim’s screams alerted several nearby residents who rushed to help her. Fuller fled from the scene. The victim suffered minor injuries.

At approximately 3:00 pm, Fuller attempted to kidnap another victim, this time a teenage girl, on Arundel Drive in Fort Washington. The victim screamed for help, again alerting another resident in the area who intervened. Fuller fled again.

At 3:15 pm, as detectives were on the first scene on Stonesboro Road talking to witnesses, the suspect returned to that street in the same green SUV used in both crimes. When he saw the officers, he turned around and headed back onto Allentown Road. Patrol officers immediately stopped his SUV and took him into custody without incident.

Fuller is charged with attempted kidnapping, attempted kidnapping of a child under 16 and second-degree assault. He has admitted his involvement in both crimes. He is being held on a no-bond status.

Investigators are concerned there may be additional victims or people who have had a similar experience with Fuller.
