Sheriff's department expected to make announcement

Posted: Updated:
 (SAN DIEGO) CBS News 8 - The San Diego Sheriff's Department said it plans to make an announcement Thursday morning related to the attempted kidnapping of a seven-year-old girl at Skyline Elementary School in Solana Beach last week. 

     Wednesday night, Sheriff's Department spokeswoman Jan Caldwell would not directly address published reports that the suspect in that case has agreed to surrender to authorities through his attorney, Paul Pfingst. 

     Pfinsgt told CBS News 8 Wednesday evening that he would issue no comment on the case until after the Sheriff's Department had first made its announcement.  

     Sheriff's deputies reported that the incident occurred when school was out and kids were being picked up around 3:30 p.m. Monday, March 23 at  the elementary school on Loma Santa Fe Drive. Authorities said the suspect came onto campus, grabbed the seven-year-old girl, put his hand over her mouth, and tried to wrap her head in packing tape.

     "The female screamed and at that point teachers heard, came out and the man fled on foot," said Captain Theresa Adams-Hydar last week.

The girl managed to escape and is reportedly doing well.

That suspect is described as a white male in his 40's, around 6 feet tall, weighing 200 pounds. He was wearing a green baseball hat, a baseball jersey, baseball pants, and shoes. He was driving a boxy black and silver Ford SUV - possibly a Ford Flex.
