Woman Frees Herself from the Grasp of a Kidnapper NR10222cj


But Detectives Still Need Help with the Case   

Los Angeles: Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) West Valley detectives are asking for the public’s help in providing any information that would lead to the arrest of an attempted kidnapping suspect.

Early this morning around 4:20 a.m. in the 17900 block of Sherman Way detectives say that a woman was walking to her car in an apartment complex parking lot when a man approached her from behind and covered her mouth with his left hand.  As the victim struggled with the suspect, the man dropped a white t-shirt that he was holding in his right hand.  When the man tried to pick up the t-shirt, the woman managed to escape, and the attacker ran away from the scene.

The suspect is described as a 20 to 25-year-old male Hispanic who stands between 5 feet 5 inches and 5 feet 10 inches tall.    

Anyone with information regarding this crime is urged to call LAPD West Valley Division Detectives Ed Pape or John Doerbecker at 818-374-7700.  During non-business hours or on weekends, calls may be directed to 1-877-LAPD-24-7.  Anyone wishing to remain anonymous may call Crimestoppers at1-800-222-TIPS (800-222-8477).  Tipsters may also contact Crimestoppers by texting to phone number 274637 (C-R-I-M-E-S on most keypads) using a cell phone.  All text messages should begin with the letters “LAPD.”  Tipsters can also go to LAPDOnline.org, click on “web tips” and follow the prompts.
