Alfonso C. Acacia
The Kane County State’s Attorney office has charged an Oswego man in the attempted child abduction of two Aurora girls that occurred in late August.
Alfonso C. Acacia, 24, of the 300 block of Springbrook Trail, was charged Aug. 31 in connection with the incident that occurred at about 8 a.m. Aug. 27, in the area of Best Place and Linda Court on the city’s west side. He is charged with attempted child abduction, police said.
The two girls, both of whom are sixth-graders at Jefferson Middle School, told police that as they were walking in the area, they were approached by a man in a silver sedan similar to a Dodge Avenger, who told them to get into the car, according to police.
They immediately ran toward the Wal-Mart in the 2100 block of West Galena Boulevard and went into the store. The suspect then followed the girls to the Wal-Mart, police said, but kept driving once they entered the building. The girls were not injured.
The girls offered an important piece of evidence that led to the major break in the case when they took note that the license plate of the vehicle contained the characters “E73."
The same afternoon of the incident, Aurora Police were contacted by a Montgomery Police sergeant who had run the partial plate information through their in-house records system.
One of the records came back with information on a full license plate registered to a silver Dodge Avenger owned by Acacia, police said. It was also noted that Acacia’s picture closely matched the description of the suspect supplied by the two girls, police said.
Aurora Police detectives took Acacia into custody at his residence on Aug. 31 without incident. He has since posted the required 10 percent of his bail which was set at $10,000. His next court date is 9 a.m. Sept. 10 at the Kane County Judicial Center in St. Charles.
