Today, Hamilton County Prosecutor Melissa Powers announced the indictment of Lisa Nacrelli (DOB 1/8/79) for the June 17, 2023 incident in Norwood involving the attempted abduction of a child.

Nacrelli was indicted for one count of Burglary (F2), one count of Impersonation of Peace Officer (F3), and one count of Attempted Abduction (F4). If convicted on all charges, Nacrelli faces a maximum possible sentence of 12.5 years in prison.

On June 17, 2023, a 7 year old child was on the sidewalk in front of his home when a female stranger approached him. The suspect, Nacrelli, rubbed the child’s head and back and asked him to come home with her. The child refused and went inside to speak with his mother. Nacrelli indicated to the mother that her name was Lisa with Child Protective Services, and was investigating a report made about the children in this home. Nacrelli entered the victim’s residence to “inspect” the home. Nacrelli then left the property.

The victims contacted Norwood Police and reported what had happened. The victims provided a description of the suspect, video from their doorbell camera and the name “Lisa.”

Norwood Police confirmed the suspect was not employed by Hamilton County Jobs and Family Services.

On June 18, 2023, officers located a woman matching the suspect description walking on Montgomery Road and took her into custody.

Nacrelli is currently detained at the Hamilton County Justice Center. Her bond was set at $32,500 at 10% by Judge Tyrone Yates.

Hamilton County Prosecutor Melissa Powers commented, “It’s the worst nightmare for any parent but fortunately this child realized something was wrong and informed his mother. It is astounding that this woman would pretend to be with JFS and actually enter their home.

With this type of behavior, there is an obvious concern this may have happened before. If you have any information, please contact Norwood Police Department.”
