A 40-year-old possibly transient man was arrested Sunday in El Cajon for the attempted kidnapping of a 1-year-old girl, a lieutenant said.
The alleged crime happened about 3:15 p.m. at 415 Fletcher Parkway, said El Cajon Lt. Darrin Forster.
The man, who appeared to be a transient, tried to run after trying to take the baby from her mother, but witnesses gave police his description and the officers located him nearby and arrested him, Forster said.
Anyone with additional information was asked to call El Cajon police at 619-579-3311.
