Teen Girl Escapes Attempted Kidnapping

VACAVILLE, Calif. (CBS13) — Police are searching for a suspect who allegedly attempted to kidnap a teen girl Tuesday evening.

The Fairfield Police Department said the 14-year-old victim was selling magazine subscriptions door-to-door on Walters Road at about 6:30 p.m. when a man attacked her from behind and attempted to drag her to her vehicle.

The teen girl fought back and slipped free, running to a nearby residence for help.  The suspect fled the scene before police arrived.

Investigators described the suspect as a Hispanic male in his mid 20s, approximately 6 feet tall, with a medium build. He was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and blue jeans. He has short, dark hair, a goatee and tattoos on his arms.

The suspect’s vehicle is described as a 1990s model green Honda four-door sedan with new tires.

    is it just me,or does it seem their always looking for some “hispanic” kidnapping suspect.Oh thats right,their only here to work and provide….I forget :)

      Nice try Minute Man (sorry or your wife), but adding a smiley face at the end doesn’t make blatant racism okay. By the way, didn’t they have some freak over in the bay area near you guys kidnap, imprison for 19 years, and impregnate twice a nice young girl. He was “hispanic” right? Oh no, wait, he was white. Why are most of the child molesters old white guys? Two can play at this game.

      the guy is a creep. he would be a creep if he was not Hispanic. Eye witnesses are also notoriously unreliable.

      don’t agree with the “hispanic” part, but I will say that tatoos seem to be a common theme…

    Wow this is scary. My first job was going door-to-door selling in Sacramento selling the newspaper subscriptions. Thank God nothing like this ever happened to me. Although I did have some strange encounters, drunk people answering the door, etc. Well I am glad to hear the girl was able to get away.

    And they SERIOUSLY need to hire more literate journalists or whatever. “A man attacked her from behind and attempted to drag her to her vehicle” …I believe they mean he attempted to drag her to HIS VEHICLE. That is such simple grammar. I don’t understand how they can make such blatant errors that are so easy to notice and fix. Especially when they know the article is going to be published for all to read. Proofread your writing…

    Isn’t it dark at 6:30?
    How can one tell from a distance, in the dark, if the tires are new?
    Maybe it’s the same guy that’s been robbing hotels.
    Enquiring minds would like to know.

    Hispanic? Anyone shocked?

  • Come back to reality

    “Hispanic” is just a general discrption so they can get an idea of what the person looks like. It’s alot better then “some guy”! White, black, hispanic, asian, east indian, arabic, who cares…if your looking for some one, it’s important to get a “physical discrption” we’re not psycic mind readers who can pin point people through esp. And if you can… the Pentagon would like to hear from you. ( or your Psyciatrist!)

    I happen to live in the mobile home park where the girl was approached. I have two daughters, and they are never allowed to go door to door without an adult, even though they’re ages are 11 and 13. Whether the person is Hispanic, White, Black, or polka dotted the police need to have accurate information to go on. This guy is a perv that needs to be caught and put behind bars asap.

    I am glad that this young girl was able to escape. I have twin girls and they are currently in sixth grade. I could not fathom to continue living if something bad will happen to my children. 2 months ago, I was so worried I couldn’t fetch my children because by time they go home from school I am still at work. What I did to protect them is I registered their phones to SafeKidZone. It’s a panic button alert installed on their phones that when someone assaults them or they encounter an emergency they will just press the panic button and their trusted friends, family members and the nearest 911 will be notified. What I also love about the service is that I would be able to locate where they are currently located. I did recommend this service to my friends because I find it very helpful in protecting my children. If you want to check out, this is their site http://Safekidzone.com/
