On December 3, 2015 at approximately 7:10 a.m. the Monterey Park Police Department responded to a call of an attempted kidnapping. A 16 year old female victim was walking to school in the 600 block of N. Orange Avenue in the City of Monterey Park. The suspect pulled into a driveway blocking the sidewalk and attempted to engage her in conversation. When the victim attempted to walk away, the suspect exited the vehicle and grabbed the victim from behind and attempted to force her into his vehicle. The victim screamed and was released. The suspect got back into the vehicle and fled southbound on Orange Avenue. The victim was shaken but unharmed.
The suspect is described as a male Hispanic, 20-30 years of age, approximately 5-foot-8, unshaven, thin build, shaved-short black hair, wearing a black long sleeve t-shirt and blue jeans. Suspect spoke with a Spanish accent. The suspect vehicle (pictured below) is described as possibly an early to mid 2000s Chevy Colorado or GMC Canyon white in color single cab truck, black bed liner, tinted windows and oversized five spoke wheel rims.
