Composite of Attempt Kidnap Suspect Released

Los Angeles: West Valley Detectives are asking for the public’s help in identifying a suspect who tried to abduct a high school girl at gunpoint.

The incident occurred on Thursday, September 6, 2007, at around 1:00 P.M., as the girl, a student at Zane Grey Continuation School, was walking southbound on Reseda Boulevard toward Victory Boulevard. The suspect pulled alongside the girl several times as she walked alone and made comments to entice her into his vehicle. She ignored each advance. As she continued westbound, the suspect pulled over and demanded that she get into his vehicle. When she looked in the suspect’s direction, she saw that he was pointing a handgun at her through the open passenger window.

The suspect’s actions caused traffic to accumulate behind him and an impatient driver began honking at him. The suspect immediately made a U-turn on Victory Boulevard, vanishing in an eastbound direction and out of sight.

The suspect was described as a Caucasian, 50 to 55 years of age, with gray curly hair and gray goatee. He was wearing square-framed clear prescription glasses and a dark business suit with dark necktie. The victim was unable to describe the suspect’s vehicle any further than a dark, possibly black van or SUV. The license plate number was not obtained.

The suspect was armed with an unknown type of handgun and should be considered armed and dangerous.

Anyone with information that can assist with the identification of this suspect is urged to call West Valley Detective Robert Ward at 818-374-7730. During after hours and on weekends, call the 24-hour toll-free Detective Information Desk at 1-877-LAW-FULL (1-877-529 3955).
