Young Girls Fight Off Would-be Kidnapper
Police are asking for help to find a man who allegedly grabbed and tried to kidnap a young girl.
Two girls, ages 9 and 11, were walking home Tuesday evening around 7:30 near the Raley’s on Alamo Drive in Vacaville.
They told police a man approached them as they were walking in a lane behind the store. They said the man grabbed the nine-year-old from behind, lifting her up. The 11-year-old grabbed the other girl’s legs, and started screaming.
The girls say at that point the man released the younger girl, and ran away.
Once the girls got home, they called police. Officers say the man was described as having short, thinning white hair, possibly a white mustache, and wearing dark shorts and shirt.
Anyone with information about this incident are asked to call police at (707) 449-5269.
