The Richmond Police Department has arrested and charged a man with stalking after investigating the attempted abduction of a young girl in Fulton earlier this week.
At approximately 1:40 p.m. Tuesday, a 10-year-old girl walking in the 1100 block of Apperson Street to the Powhatan Community pool reported that a man in a vehicle attempted to persuade her to enter his vehicle.
Within 24 hours of the incident, detectives identified a person of interest. After consulting with the Commonwealth’s Attorney’s Office, detectives have charged Shahriar Bakhtiarizadeh, 52, of Chesterfield, with one count of misdemeanor stalking.
Detectives would like to thank the community for their help and information in this case.
