Authorities sought the public’s help in finding two men who tried to kidnap a 16-year-old girl while she was walking home from a bus stop.
The girl, whose name was not released because of her age, was approached around 4 p.m. Monday by two men in a white Ford Mustang when she left a bus stop on Clark Street near Robinson Street in the unincorporated area known as Mead Valley, sheriff’s Lt. Daniel Hedge said.
“The passenger exited the vehicle and ran after the victim,” Hedge said. “The victim was able to run to safety and call the police.”
The man who tried to grab the girl was Latino, about five feet, six inches tall, with a medium build, shaved head, mustache, and tattoos on the right side of his neck and both of his arms, Hedge said. A description of the driver of the Mustang was not released. The car was an older model with tinted windows, Hedge said.
Anyone with information about the suspects was asked to contact sheriff’s Investigator Omar Rodriguez at 951-210-1053 or via email at email@example.com.
