Search for suspect in attempted kidnappings

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - San Diego police Saturday warned people about a white, balding, potbellied, 50-year-old-plus man with a goatee who has tried to lure children near Emerson Elementary School into his red vehicle three times in the past two weeks.

He has been spotted in a red truck or a red sports car, with a damaged front right bumper, in the 3500 and 3700 blocks of Oceanview Boulevard, and in the 3500 block of Logan Avenue near Emerson Elementary School, between 1:45 p.m. and 2:15 p.m., said Officer David Stafford.

In each case, he drove slowly alongside the children and asked them if they wanted a ride. "He offers money and when the victims refuse he orders them into the car," Stafford said.

The man was described as bald on top with salt-and-pepper hair, a thin face and pronounced cheek bones.

Anyone who has seen the suspect was asked to call Detective Ruben Hernandez at (619) 527-3500.
