VII.  PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT
·        Attempted Kidnapping
o  On Friday, April 12, 2019, about 4:30 p.m., a student was walking home from school in the area of Magnolia Avenue and Lincoln Street, in the unincorporated area of Riverside County known as Home Gardens. As the student walked past a black, older model Toyota sedan (no further description) parked in the area of the 91 Riverside Freeway bridge and Buchanan Street in the City of Corona, the sole male Hispanic occupant caught her attention by whistling and motioning her to his vehicle.
 
o  The student walked up to the passenger window at which time the subject asked for directions to the street he was already parked on. Without warning, the subject reached across his front right passenger seat and grabbed the student’s right arm in an attempt to pull her inside of his vehicle.
 
o  The student immediately pulled away from the subject breaking free from his grasp. The student ran away from the location and observed the subject immediately drive away in the opposite direction out of sight. Due to the delayed reporting of the incident, deputies were unable to conduct a search of the area for the subject.
 
o  The subject was described as a clean shaven 45-50-year-old male. He was wearing an orange colored t-shirt (as worn by construction workers) and blue jeans. He did not have a weapon.
 
o  The investigation is ongoing and anyone with information about this incident is encouraged to contact Deputy Curry at the Jurupa Valley Sheriff’s Station at (951) 955-2600.
