SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - San Diego police released information Thursday about the vehicle believed to be related to the case of an attempted kidnapping in Scripps Ranch earlier this week.
According to police, a 10-year-old female and 7 1/2 year-old male were walking home near Jerabek Elementary School. While walking on 10500 Scripps Trail, a Jeep driven by a male suspect followed them.
The Jeep stopped in front of the juveniles and waited for them to pass. After the juveniles passed, the suspect continued his actions by stopping in front of them multiple times as they continued to walk. Then the suspect exited the Jeep.
The suspect attempted to grab the male, but the female pushed him away. The suspect also tried to grab the female, but both juveniles ran up a nearby hill to get away. The suspect returned to his Jeep and fled. The Jeep is a faded black mid-90's model Jeep Cherokee.
A person called the San Diego Police Department and reported seeing the jeep just before 9:00 a.m. Thursday. SDPD then dispatched two patrol cars, but they didn’t find anything during their search.
