Man tries to kidnap 13-year-old girl walking to school
EL PASO — A man tried to kidnap a 13-year-old girl as she walked to school in Central El Paso. Police want to put him behind bars before he tries it again.
The girl was walking on East 6th Street and South Park near Guillen Middle School the morning of February 28.
A man got out of an SUV and started pulling on the girl's sweatshirt.
"As this is happening, there's a woman walking on the opposite side of the street. The victim begins to yell at that woman as if she is her mother. This causes the suspect in this case to release the victim. The victim is able to go ahead and get away and the man gets into this SUV and flees from the scene," said Javier Sambrano with the El Paso Police Department.
The man is Hispanic, bald with a mustache and beard. He was driving a gray SUV similar to a Chevrolet Suburban.
If you know who he is, call Crime Stoppers at 566-TIPS.
