DAVIS (CBS13) – The UC Davis Police Department is searching for a man suspected of trying to kidnap a 10-year-old girl Sunday afternoon on campus.
Police say the girl was walking in the Orchard Park area in the northwest corner of the campus around noon on Sunday when she was approached by a man on a bike.
The suspect asked her where her parents were. When she didn’t answer, he rode closer to her, reached for her and said, “Come home with me.” The girl then ran to her home in the family dormitories on campus.
The suspect is described as a white man, 19 or 20 years old. He had cloudy grey eyes, was wearing a yellow t-shirt, black shorts, black lace-up shoes and a black and orange baseball cap that was turned backwards.
He had several piercings in the upper part of his right ear and a black oval inserted earring in his left earlobe. He also had a round ring through the middle of his nose.
He had a rose tattoo on his left upper arm, a cross tattoo on his right outer forearm and a swastika tattoo on his left outer calf. Underneath the swastika he had “love” written in black pen.
He was riding a black mountain bike with white “Magna” written on it with no shocks.
He was last seen riding toward Russell Park.
Anyone with information is asked to call the UC Davis Police Department at (530) 752-1230.
