A man wanted for questioning in connection with an alleged abduction attempt in Canyon Lake is being sought, police announced today.

The alleged attempt occurred March 22 around 8 p.m. in the 31000 block of Railroad Canyon Road in Canyon Lake, according to a report from Sgt. Victor Tejeda of the Riverside County Sheriff's Department.

The man "drove up to a female and attempted to coax her into his car. The suspect subsequently approached the victim, grabbed her arm, and attempted to pull her into his car. The victim fought back, broke free, and fled the scene. The victim reported the incident to the Canyon Lake Police Department," according to the sergeant's report.

The man was described as a white male, between 25 and 35 years of age, brown hair, unknown eye color, approximately 6'2" tall, between 180 and 190 pounds, wearing a plain black T-shirt and blue jeans. He was driving an unknown-make or model four-door black car, possibly resembling a Toyota.

'You're' giving her the opportunity. How generous of you. She doesn't owe you anything. The police are the ones who are responsible for handling her case, not you. Back off.

oh really Bd? the police are responsible for taking her report, that doesn't mean the rest of us have no responsibility to "police" our own community. should we just blindly ignore what's been put in front of us and accept what we're told without question? I never claimed to be "owed" anything. Yes, I am giving her the opportunity to explain and/or clarify because no one else has asked the obvious questions (which still haven't been answered). You are the one that called her a young girl seeking attention. Why is that if you don't have your own reservations about the validity of the information provided?

I didn't say that I believed she was making it up or that I didn't. I wasn't there and I don't know the facts. What I'm trying to do is stop you from harrassing her. If you insist on continuing to badger her, let me know if you or one of your family members is ever the victim of a crime so that I can ask you/them all of the questions that you feel need to be addressed in public. I sure hope you answer them all fully and promptly, else I'll think you're a shady guy trying to pull one over on all of us.

I'm with Joey! Why does she feel the need to explain or justify what happened to her? If that makes sense? A concerned, observant citizen asking questions because what information is available makes no sense, a lot going on here that’s not been said. Unanswered questions, and all of a sudden Christi Ford on the Lake Elsinore-Wildomar Patch replying to comments, I mean come on, she is provoking herself, she doesn't owe anyone an explanation about how she handled things. She must not care about her safety or feel like it’s possible that the alleged kidnapper seeing her comments her name.

Canyon lake does not have a police dept. They sometimes have a contract deputy who backs up a meniffe deputy. Because it says police on the car doesn't make it so. As for the community patrol they won't do contact with suspects.
