VB abduction suspect faced judge, will head to trial

WAVY

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) –  A Virginia Beach man charged with trying to steal a child faced a judge and his accuser Thursday afternoon in juvenile court.

Last July in Sherwood Lakes along Locksley Lane a new father said he had just returned home with his 2-month-old son in the car, drove into his garage and got out of the car. He then saw a truck pull up behind him driven by the defendant Bryan Lowe.

After some random questions from Lowe he says Lowe then stated “Uh, yeah I think I would like to take your son.” The father says he quickly locked the car. Lowe then pulled out a black pistol but left without the sleeping infant. Police soon nabbed Lowe. Earlier testimony indicates he’s a military veteran who suffers from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and had stopped taking his medications.

“We as a society need to take care of those men and women that went over there and saw things we’ll never see,” said Cathy Kelley a family friend. “I think the VA failed. This is only one case.”

She said she believes some troops react better to medications than other troops. A judge found there was enough evidence to send the case to a grand jury.

Lowe remains held at the correctional center as his case now heads to trial.

Lowe’s next court date will be Oct. 20 in front of a grand jury and a docket call on Oct. 23.
