    Help LBPD Find This Kidnapping Suspect! Police Believe He Tried to Grab 4 Yr Old From LB Daycare Center...And May Be Involved In Six Other LB/Signal Hill Incidents Involving Children

    Sept. 30 kidnap suspect(October 1, 2002) -- Help LBPD find this kidnapping suspect.

    LBPD believes he grabbed a 4 year old girl from a LB daycare center in the 2200 block of Olive Avenue on Sept. 30. The circumstances are chilling.

    Police believe the suspect tried open a locked chain-link game and entered the playground...where two 4 year old girls were playing; he allegedly approached two four year old girls in the playground, asked if he could show them something and when they walked to the suspect, he allegedly grabbed one of them by the arm and began pulling her outside the playground to his truck that was in the alley.

    Police say an assistant teacher from the daycare center saw the suspect and did not recognize him, grabbed the child back from him and the suspect drove away southbound in the alley.

    And due to similar facts, LBPD detectives believe this suspect may be involved in the following incidents involving children:
