Attempted Kidnapping suspect sought by Milpitas Police
Submitted By Officer Gene Smith, Milpitas PD
Milpitas Police are looking for a suspect who tried to kidnap a 17-year-old Calaveras Hills High School student who was walking to school on Roswell Drive. The suspect is described as a Hispanic male adult, 20 to 30 years of age, short black hair and was last seen wearing a two-toned blue hooded sweat shirt and blue jeans. Approximately 5'-8" tall and physically fit, the suspect spoke Spanish. The suspect was last seen running northbound on Carnegie Drive.
The kidnapping attempt occurred on Roswell Drive on Thursday February 3 at about 8:30 a.m. when the student was walking to school. The suspect walked passed her in the opposite direction, turned around, began following her and said something to her in Spanish. The victim, not knowing the suspect, continued to walk away at a fast pace and immediately called her mom on her cell phone. The suspect began chasing the victim and ran up from behind and attempted to grab her. She turned away from him and fled onto the Calaveras Hills High School campus where she notified a School Resource Police Officer.
Milpitas Police are also currently investigating two similar incidents involving two other Milpitas girls ages 13 and 17 years old that occurred last month on January 24, involving a suspect described as an Asian man. These events occurred within the 1600 block of Everglades Drive and the 400 block of North Park Victoria Drive respectively. The suspect in today's events, however, differs in description from the previous cases.
Anyone with information about suspect's whereabouts should call Milpitas Police at (408) 586-2400 or provide information online at www.ci.milpitas.ca.gov.
