Inglewood, California – Law enforcement agencies have changed dramatically over the years as technology has advanced. By using advanced technology, they are able to more efficiently and effectively do their job, thereby providing a safer environment for people to live in.
But besides the advanced technology the officers use, they also sometimes rely on traditional methods in order to resolve cases, and one of those methods is appealing to the public and asking for help.
This time, the Inglewood Police Department appealed to the public, asking for assistance in an effort to identify a suspect who played a role in an attempted kidnapping that occurred a few days ago.
The suspect they are attempting to identify and asking for information from the public is described as being a 5’9″ tall male and is believed to be of Hispanic descent in his late 20s and early 30s. Authorities also provided a description of the suspect’s clothing, saying he was wearing blue medical gloves, a black medical facemask, a gray hooded jacket, blue jeans, a black hat, and black shoes.
The attempted kidnapping took place on December 2 at approximately 4 p.m. near the intersection of Doty Avenue and 109th Street. According to the information provided by the Inglewood Police Department, the suspect approached the victim and started pulling her towards his vehicle, but the victim managed to free herself from the suspect’s grip and flee. After the failed kidnapping attempt, the suspect entered a gray 2010 Nissan Pathfinder SUV and headed toward Prairie Avenue.
