NASHUA – Police on Monday released a composite sketch showing the teenaged suspect accused of abducting a Massachusetts woman at knifepoint after slipping into her car last week.

Police report that the youth, believed to be around 15 years old, got into the woman’s car at around 9 p.m. on Tuesday, April 13, while it was parked at either Old Navy or the nearby Gulf station at the corner of Spitbrook Road and the Daniel Webster Highway.

After the woman returned, the youth allegedly threatened her with a knife, and made her drive around the city before eventually getting out and running off, taking some of the woman’s belongings with him, police report.

The woman wasn’t harmed but she doesn’t know the city well and was unable to tell police where the suspect got out of her car, Detective Lt. Jeff Bukunt said. She drove to a relative’s house in Hudson before calling police.

The woman described the suspect as a white male, about 14 to 15 years old, standing around 5 feet 7 inches, with an average build. At the time, he wore a green Celtic’s jersey over a white t-shirt, and white athletic shorts, a black flat brimmed ball cap and black high top sneakers. The number 42 was tattooed on his upper right arm.

Police are still investigating, and Bukunt declined to comment on any other details of the case.

Anyone with information on the investigation is asked to contact the Nashua Police Department at (603) 594-3500 or the Nashua Crime line at (603) 589-1665.
