EUCLID, Ohio– The Cuyahoga County Prosecutor’s Office released new details about an off-duty Cleveland police officer accused of trying to kidnap a 12-year-old girl.
Solomon Nhiwatiwa, 34, turned himself into Euclid police on Tuesday and remains in the city jail.
Prosecutors said Nhiwatiwa approached the victim while she was waiting for the school bus on Euclid Avenue in Euclid on Aug. 16. The off-duty officer asked if the 12-year-old needed a ride to school, but she refused.
He drove away, only to return about a minute later. Nhiwatiwa parked his car, walked up to the girl and exposed himself, according to the prosecutor’s office.
Then Nhiwatiwa urinated on the victim’s head, upper body and legs while holding a phone, the police report said. Investigators said they believe he was recording the incident. Nhiwatiwa left and that’s when the girl called her mother at work.
