Los Angeles Police Department Press Release
Los Angeles: Detectives from the Los Angeles Police Department’s 77th Area are seeking the public’s help in identifying an attempt kidnapping suspect.
On October 18, 2020, around 6:00 p.m., the victim went to a local restaurant on the 100 block of West Manchester Avenue. The suspect walked up to the victim as she was walking to her car and demanded that the victim hand over the victim’s young brother. The suspect tried to grab the 1-year-old brother and claimed he was her child. Victims walked to their vehicle and the suspect followed them. The suspect once again tried to take the child from the victim’s hands. The victim asked for help and ran back into the restaurant.
The same suspect then made her way to the 8000 block of South Main Street and entered a gated apartment courtyard. Several children were playing in the courtyard and the suspect grabbed a 5-year-old child and tried to leave the area with him. Family members observed the suspect trying to carry out the child and stopped the suspect from taking him.
The suspect has been described as a Hispanic female between 20 to 35-years-old, standing approximately 5 feet 6 inches tall and weighing around 135 pounds with short-cropped brown hair. She was wearing a white shirt, light green shorts, and dark slippers.
