A Canadian sex offender who recently crossed the border into the U.S. is not a suspect in a recent attempted child abduction in Federal Way, police said.
Detectives said theyve received more than 10 tips from people pointing them toward Michael Stanley, who made news earlier this month after crossing into Blaine. Stanley is wanted in Canada on charges of breach of recognizance and mischief and driving offenses, the Associated Press reported.
He has a history of sexual offenses against women and children and went missing Oct. 1, when he cut off his electronic monitoring bracelet.
Stanley crossed the U.S. border Oct. 7 two days after the attempted child abduction eliminating him as a suspect, Federal Way police said.
Detectives are reviewing 10 additional tips in the case.
An 8-year-old girl reported that a man grabbed her from behind while she was crossing the playfield at Brigadoon Elementary School Oct. 5. She escaped after biting and scratching his hands.
