    OR - Attempted Kidnapping

    Man accused of attempting to kidnap 12-year-olds

    A 63-year-old man is facing attempted kidnapping, coercion and attempted rape charges in an attempted abduction Thursday morning of two North Portland middle school students, police said Monday.

    The incident occurred about 8:30 a.m. in the 5100 block of North Willis Boulevard as the 12-year-old girls were waiting for a bus. A man driving a blue 1986 Honda Accord drove past the two girls, made a lewd gesture at them and then circled back and pulled up to them. He told them they needed to get in his car right away, said Det. Paul Dolbey, a police spokesman.

    The students ran off and police were alerted.

    Sean S. Shanley was arrested later Thursday and booked into the Justice Center Jail at 1:38 p.m., accused of two counts of attempted kidnapping, attempted rape and coercion. Police found a fake gun in his car.

    I wonder if this was his first attempt at kidnapping or if he has been successful in the past?

    What's scary about this incident is that it occurred in broad daylight, the kidnapper tried to abduct two girls at the same time, it happened in a residential area (not a secluded or isolated spot), and he wasn't subtle or hesitant about it (i.e., not nervous and didn't use a pretext), all of which suggests that this might not be his first time.....I really hope I'm wrong, but generally speaking, even criminals get nervous and have to work their way up to committing crimes this bold.

    Documents reveal luring suspect's past

    <snip>

    The probable cause documents show Shanley had a fake gun in his car when he approached the sixth graders, and reveal disturbing details about Shanley.
    <snip>
    According to court records, police have received numerous complaints about Shanley. The documents also show that during an interview with police, Shanley allegedly told a female officer to "urinate on his face."

    And that on a recent visit to his North Portland home, police observed pornography, a large number of women's underwear and a sexually explicit photograph of Shanley sucking on a pacifier.

    Also in the documents, police say during a traffic stop Shanley's pants unzipped and that he had olive oil on his face, neck and hands and that he told police, "he was looking for a woman."

    Today the judge called Shanley a danger to society and that he should remain locked up, his bail is set at $250,000.

    Portland Police want to know if Shanley has any other victims. They say you might remember his prosthetic right arm. If you have any information, contact police.

    This guy is sick, sick, sick. I doubt very seriously that he doesn't have victims out there somewhere! Thank God that he didn't get those 2 little girls in the car with him!

    From Another Article

    Neighbors say they've called police on Sean Shanley after seeing him jogging in his underwear.

    One girl said she knows who he is. "He exposed himself, like, you know, like his front part to me."

    Neighbors said they've called police on Shanley after seeing him jogging in his underwear. One man said he's seen Shanley running with a Superman cape around his shoulders.
