The Fullerton Police Department is asking for the public’s assistance in identifying and locating two suspects who attempted to kidnap a 19-year-old female at approximately noon Friday (April 6).

The victim reported she was walking in the north alley of 100 W. Valencia Drive, when she observed a small black car enter the alley and park behind her.  She was then grabbed from behind and dragged toward the car by the passenger.  The driver stayed in the car. 

The victim was able to free herself with the assistance of two Good Samaritans.  Both suspects fled in the vehicle and were last seen westbound through the alley.

The suspects were described as male Hispanics, and the suspect that grabbed the victim was described as being between 22-29 years of age.

Anyone with information is asked to call Fullerton Detective Mario Magliano at (714) 738-6753.
