A young man who allegedly tried to kidnap a 7-year-old girl at her school in the San Diego County community of Solana Beach last month was behind bars Thursday following his arrest in Orange County, authorities reported.

Jack Henry Doshay, 22, of Fairbanks Ranch was taken into custody at a Laguna Niguel home about 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, according to San Diego County sheriff’s officials.

He is the son of Glenn Doshay, a well-known businessman, minority stake owner of the Padres and philanthropist in San Diego.

The younger Doshay allegedly confronted the child at Skyline Elementary School on the afternoon of March 23 and ordered her to get into his silver-and-black SUV. When she refused, he drove away.

Investigators investigated about 150 tips in the case before tracking down the suspect with information provided by his defense attorney, Paul Pfingst, authorities said.

Doshay was booked into county jail and was being held without bail pending arraignment, scheduled for Friday afternoon in San Diego.
