FBI: $5K reward for man in attempting kidnapping on Vanderbilt campus

The Federal Bureau of Investigation is now offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the man who allegedly attempted to kidnap a woman on Vanderbilt University’s campus.

Scott Wallace is accused of pulling alongside a TSU student visiting Vanderbilt at the intersection of 25th Avenue and Jess Neely Boulevard, right by Vanderbilt’s baseball field, on Sept. 21.

Witnesses to the incident say Wallace got out of his white van and tackled the woman and appeared to attempt to force her inside his car.

The victim fought back and was able to escape. Wallace reportedly fled in the direction of Natchez Trace and headed toward West End Avenue.

Witnesses then came to the victim’s aid. She suffered abrasions to her head and elbows.

Metro police issued a warrant for Wallace’s arrested two days later on Sept. 23 charging him with aggravated kidnapping.

The FBI is now offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to his arrest.

According to a release, he is also no wanted for unlawful flight to avoid prosecution.


Wallace is 5 feet, 10 inches tall and weighs 250 pounds. At the time of the alleged incident he was wearing a white t-shirt, dark shorts and dark shoes.

He drives a white 2001 Chevrolet Venture with Ohio tags with the number GES7128.
