Attempted kidnapping in Clairemont Mesa

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A would-be kidnapper jumped a young woman Friday in a Clairemont Mesa parking lot and made a failed attempt to drag her into a car, authorities reported.

The attempted abduction in the 3500 block of Ashford Street was reported about 12:15 p.m., according to San Diego police.

The 18-year-old victim told detectives that shortly before the man grabbed her, he and a cohort had encountered her in a liquor store in the area and made comments about her appearance.

The men, who appeared to be in their 20s, then left the business. Moments later, she walked out and was crossing a parking area when one of the men who had flirted with her got out of a nearby black older-model Honda Accord and tried to pull her into the vehicle.

The victim was able to break free and run to safety after kicking the assailant in the groin, police said. She was uninjured.
