HARRIS, Minn. (WCCO) — A Mounds View man who is suspected in the abduction of a Pope County woman is still at large and was spotted in another vehicle Saturday, according to authorities.

Dennis Wayne Aasen, 39, is accused of kidnapping his former girlfriend last Thursday. She was found later that night inside her Chevy Suburban.

The victim was found wounded and although the Pope County Sheriff’s Office would not go into the extent of her injuries, confirmed she was recovering at a local hospital. She was reported missing and her car stolen Thursday morning when she failed to show up for work, and police searched her empty home.

Aasen is described as 5 feet, 10 inches tall and weighing about 195 pounds, sporting a shaved head and a goatee.

On Saturday near Harris, Minn., he was seen driving a dark colored Ford pickup with no topper and an unknown license plate.

Authorities ask that you call 911 if you see him, but do not approach him as he is considered dangerous.
