Police need your help finding a child rapist they say snatched a 13-year-old girl off the streets of Broken Arrow leaving behind her bicycle and her shoes.

News on Six crime reporter Lori Fullbright shows how you can help get him off the streets in this week's To Catch A Crook report.

Officer Andy Phillips of the Tulsa Police says Broken Arrow police have increased increased patrols in the neighborhood and the park since the attack happened.

"She had just left Albertson's and the suspect approached her in a black,low riding kind of truck."

After looking at pictures of different pick up trucks, the victim believes her attacker was driving a black Dodge Dakota with flames painted on the front that turn into a red stripe toward the back.

Police say when the man kidnapped the girl, it was so abrupt, that her shoes and bicycle were left behind on the street.

Captain Mark Marks of the Broken Arrow Police says, "Searching for anyone who was in that area, we encourage them to come forward with any information because our initial leads have gone stale."

If you have information about this crime, you can call Crimestoppers at 596-COPS.

You don't have to give your name and if your tip leads to an arrest, the Citizens Crime Commission will pay you a cash reward of up to two-thousand dolars.
