Police Seek Man Who Tried To Kidnap Teen Near Lakeside High School

The suspect is described as a white male adult, 25 to 30 years old, about 5'-7" tall, 160 pounds with a shaved head and numerous tattoos around the front of his neck.

Police are asking for the public’s help in finding a man who allegedly tried to kidnap a 15-year-old girl in Lake Elsinore Wednesday.

The incident was reported around 4:30 p.m. at Grand Avenue and Fairview Street.

The suspect is described as a white male adult, 25 to 30 years old, about 5'-7" tall, 160 pounds with a shaved head and numerous tattoos around the front of his neck. He also has a pierced upper right lip and his right eyebrow is also pierced. The suspect was last seen wearing a dark T-shirt and unknown-colored pants.

The victim told deputies she was walking home alone from Lakeside High School when she saw a newer blue Honda Accord with dark tinted windows stopped at the intersection of Grand Avenue and Fairview Street. As she approached the intersection, the suspect allegedly rolled down the driver's side window and asked her if she needed a ride. The victim ignored the suspect and walked past the Honda.

A few moments later, the suspect allegedly approached the girl from behind and grabbed her with both hands. The victim hit the suspect in the face with a spiked track shoe and ran home and called the police. The Honda was last seen driving south on Grand Avenue away from the location.

Anyone with further information about the incident is encouraged to contact the Lake Elsinore Police Department at 951-245-3300 or after hours and on weekends at 951-776-1099.

She gave great detailed information. These pedophiles are getting more and more brazen and traveling in twos also. So scary. Hope they catch him soon and I hope her shoe put some extra holes in his face!

Day-am.What's that crap on the fella's chin? Reminds me of a Billy Goat....and if you weren't aware, Billy Goats tinkle on THIER "goat-ee's" to attract female Goats---So it makes me wonder if this fella stinks like urine too maybe? Which maybe might could be yet another great identification feature...'course, the only question will then be, what rookie cop is gonna sniff of it for a "match"....That right there is when it can be tough to be a rookie ---jes' like Dirty Harry, they get ALL the dirty jobs! Seriously though, sounds like this idiot will be easy to find, especially if he is a known local---and also, like many newspaper's do nowadays, an effort should be made with this very story and sketch, to get the word out in Orange, Riverside, and San Berdoo Counties (Press Enterprise, and Orange County Registe mayber?)---I got a feeling with a story, and picture out there in a big way, somebody will drop a dime on him, blazing fast and muy pronto...

I agree Vince. All the newpaper publications and on line web news and social networking sights should consolidate there resources to put a dragnet on this scum bag. I drive down grand frequently and wish I would have been there to takle this idiot.. This town seems very slow to react to it's condition. Lets get Lake Elsinore cleaned up!!!

people like this are the EXACT reason that our school district should NOT stop busing! Is it really going to take one of the children getting hurt or kidnapped to make people realize the danger?

another punk sissy who's in need of a good ass whoopin ! too bad the girl didnt have a sharp pencil or a big gun.... i think he'd look extra special with a huge hole right between the sockets....
big aunt harry mary April 27, 2012 at 07:56 AM
its not the the city or the police are slow to react.. you need to remember the car--"a honda slightly customized", is the car of choice for 90% of the kids out here. finding one in a sea of hundreds, is just not as easy as you'de think i would be. remember the kid that was hit and killed on mission trail...? another honda, "lowered and slightly customized"... its like they can hide in plain sight ...makes it harder to spot the "right" car and not to torment the innocent drivers because just they drive hondas.. i would like nothing more than to see this P.O.S. caught but, its not always as easy as it seems.... he wasnt driving a "red 78 cutlass...'' or he'd be be in jail by now... or maybe even a nice warm hospital bed recovering from a severe ass beating and possible amputaion of his head starting at the ankles..... we can only hope they shoot him on site...
big aunt harry mary April 27, 2012 at 07:58 AM

He probably works for a school seeing how good they rape the taxpayers :(

If th police would stop hiding in bushes with their damn radar guns and donuts and actually patrolling the streets when the kids get outta school they would be just a little. It safer! And yes lake elsinoe needs a bussing system! Some of these kids have to hike to school in the 100+ weather and the puddles of water when it poors! Not all parents can stay at home some have to work for a living.
