Investigators: Report of attempted kidnapping in Solana Beach false

Posted: Updated:

SOLANA BEACH (CBS 8) - A young girl who told authorities a man attempted to kidnap her in Solana Beach made up the story, investigators said Tuesday.

The eight-year-old girl told sheriff's deputies a man in his 20s tried to abduct her Monday afternoon in the 500 block of South Sierra Avenue. Detectives conducting an investigation into the incident interviewed witnesses, and subsequently concluded there was no attempted abduction.

THIS IS A STORY UPDATE. Read below for an earlier version.

SOLANA BEACH (CNS) - Sheriff's deputies Tuesday made public a sketch of a lanky, tattooed 20-something man on a skateboard who tried to abduct an 8-year-old girl in Solana Beach.

The girl said the man tried to grab her near the 500 block of South Sierra Avenue about 3:30 p.m. Monday, sheriff's Sgt. Clayton Lisk said.

The suspect, who was carrying a folding knife with a black handle in a back pocket, was last seen headed north on a skateboard.

At first, sheriff's deputies said the girl said the man had a tattoo on the right arm, with "Kill" across the knuckles. Later, sheriff's deputies said the tattoo said "I Will Kill."

On the right side of his torso, he has "SEXY" tattooed, according to what girl told deputies.

The suspect is white, about 6 feet 1 inch and thin, with sunburned cheeks and shoulders, and short black hair, deputies said.

He was wearing sunglasses, black "lobe plug" earrings about the size of dimes, black cargo shorts, black Vans shoes -- one with white lacing and the other with black lacing. The tank-top shirt he was wearing was striped in pink, blue and purple and emblazoned with "I'm not an idiot" on the front and "I'm not a jerk" on the back.

The skateboard was 3-4 feet long with a brown top. On it were written "KISS ME" and an image of lips. The underside had renderings of zombies eating people, the girl told deputies. Its front wheels were green and the rear ones yellow, she said.
