Authorities Tuesday released a composite sketch of a man who tried to kidnap a 12-year-old girl in Valencia.
The abduction attempt occurred Oct. 4 about 5:45 p.m. in the Bridgeport Park area when the girl fell behind while running with her sports team, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.
“She was approached by a man who offered her a ride,” according to a sheriff’s statement. “After the victim declined, the suspect grabbed her arm and pulled her toward the direction of his vehicle. The victim fought back and managed to get away from the suspect.”
The man was described as white, 40-50 years old and 6 feet tall, with a medium build and short brown hair. He had a mole or birthmark next to his right eyebrow and drove a black, four-door, older-model Toyota or Honda, with tinted windows and a dent on the passenger’s side.
Anyone with information on the case was urged to call detectives at (661) 255-1121, ext. 5145; or Crime Stoppers at (800) 222-TIPS.
