NORMAN — Kidnapping attempt

Norman police said they are searching for a suspect after a girl was nearly kidnapped Saturday near Norman North High School.

The girl and another child were in the process of leaving the school when a black, four-door vehicle passed by and the passenger allegedly made a lewd remark to the girl and tried grabbing her through the window.

The children ran away from the vehicle and notified adults. Police said the suspect was a white male with red hair and glasses. No tag number for the vehicle was provided.

Rollover victims in stable condition

Norman police said two individuals transported to OU Medical Center on Monday were in stable condition after a rollover wreck near Flood Avenue and Nebraska Street.

The two individuals in serious condition were in a 2003 Chevrolet Trailblazer traveling eastbound on Nebraska Street when the vehicle failed to stop or yield at the stop sign. The trailblazer was then struck by a northbound 2006 Ford Taurus, causing the trailblazer to roll over.

The driver of the trailblazer was identified as Martha Morrison, 74, of Norman, and the passenger was a 15-year-old Norman female.

The driver of the Ford was identified as Tonya Johnson, 51, of Norman, who was also transported to Norman Regional Hospital. A 15-year-old Norman girl also was in the Ford vehicle.

Police said the speed of the vehicles did not appear to be excessive or a significant contributing factor to the cause of the collision.
