Arrest Made in Attempted Abduction Spree That Targeted at Several Women in Philly
A man accused of trying to abduct several women within a little more than a half-hour span on a Philadelphia street Sunday morning is now in custody.
On Wednesday night, police officers arrested Shaun Lloyd along Woodland Avenue in Southwest Philly, investigators said Thursday.

“We were out there actively looking for him,” Philadelphia Police Capt. Mark Burgmann said. “He was tracked down to a homeless shelter I believe on the 6900 block of Woodland Avenue. He was waiting on line to get in.”
Lloyd, 36, is charged with attempted kidnapping, stalking, unlawful restraint, indecent assault, simple assault, false imprisonment and harassment, police said. He is being held on $1 million bail. It is unclear if he has an attorney who could comment on his behalf.

Lloyd is homeless but previously lived along Swain Street, a short distance from where the attacks occurred in the Francisville neighborhood.
NBC10 obtained surveillance video showing the suspect grabbing a 21-year-old woman on the 800 block of North 15th Street around 10 a.m. Sunday. The woman screams and punches the man who then walks away. After the 21-year-old woman reported the incident, police found more surveillance footage of the man trying to abduct two other women in that same area Sunday at 9:30 a.m. and 9:35 a.m.

During one of the attacks, the man held onto an older woman for about a minute before a Good Samaritan arrived and pulled her away to safety, investigators said. A fourth potential victim, Medina Oyefusi, told NBC10 she was walking along the 800 block of North 15th Street around 9:40 a.m. Sunday when a man who fit Lloyd’s description tried to grab her.
“He got about this close and I was like, ‘Woah. What are you doing? Don’t touch me. If you touch me again, I’ll start screaming,'” Oyefusi told NBC10. 4th Victim Comes Forward as Police Search for Attempted Abduction Suspect4th Victim Comes Forward as Police Search for Attempted Abduction Suspect

Oyefusi said the man followed her as she tried to get away.”He started digging in his pants and like, touching himself,” she said. “And I was just like, ‘Get away from me.'”Oyefusi told NBC10 the man finally backed off when she picked up the phone to call for help. “He didn’t care who was around,” she said. “He didn’t care that there were other people on the street. He had a goal and his goal was to do whatever to some woman on the street. Doesn’t matter who it was.”
Police believe there may be more victims out there.”We’re getting a lot of calls from people who think they may have had a contact with him,” Burgmann said. “They’re not sure if it was actually criminal in nature. We’re tracking them down now. A lot of them were indecent exposures in the area maybe an hour or two beforehand.”
