Los Angeles: Police are asking for the public’s help in locating a suspect who earlier this month attempted to kidnap an 11-year-old girl from a golf course in the San Fernando Valley.

On Friday, May 18, 2007, around 7:15 p.m., the girl was playing on the north side of the Braemar Country Club Golf Course, near the maintenance yard, at 4001 Reseda Boulevard in Tarzana. The girl was in the company of friends but became separated from them. The suspect grabbed the girl and walked a short distance before letting her go and fleeing.

The suspect was a male Hispanic in his 30s, 5’8" tall, 130-150 pounds, with short brown hair, a goatee and a possible tattoo on his arm. He wore a dirty white or tan shirt and dirty jeans. He was a possible transient and had a strong offensive smell.

Police are making available an artist’s rendering in the hope that a member of the public will recognize the suspect and call with whereabouts.
