Grove Chief of Police Mark Morris said they are searching for a suspect who allegedly tried to kidnap a 1-year-old girl from a splash pad Monday afternoon.

The incident happened at approximately 1:30 p.m. at the Grove Splash Pad.

Morris said a woman was taking her niece to the bathroom when a man followed them into the bathroom and picked up the victim.

The woman said she shoved the suspect, he dropped the child and left the scene, Morris said.

Both the woman and child were unharmed, Morris said.

Morris said the suspect left in a late model black Ford Focus and was driving west from the splash pad.

The suspect is described as an older, tall man with thick, long bushy gray hair and a long gray beard, Morris said.

If you have any information, Morris said you can call the Grove police at 918-786-6121.
